Can you name England U21’s XI from the first game at the new Wembley?

On March 24, 2007, England Under-21s played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Italy Under-21s in the first game at the new Wembley Stadium. 

Italy’s Giampaolo Pazzini opened the scoring after just 25 seconds and later became the first player to score a hat-trick at the ground. 

The England side has three different goalscorers, with a number of players from this team making the step up to the senior squad in later years.
