Goals from Craig Dawson and Jordan Henderson maintained England's winning start to their Euro 2013 qualifying campaign.

Stuart Pearce's England under-21 side maintained their 100% winning start to their Euro 2013 qualifying campaign with a 2-1 victory away in Norway this evening.

England's youngsters were two goals to the good with just seven minutes on the clock in Drammen.

First West Bromwich Albion centre-back Craig Dawson headed in a Henri Lansbury corner, before captain Jordan Henderson converted Ross Barkley's cross.

The Three Lions were well in control of the fixture at this point, so it came as a surprise when Valon Berisha halved the deficit for the home side in the 23rd minute from close range.

Markus Pederson spurned a chance to draw Norway level after the break when he shot wide from Yann-Erik de Lanlay's pass.

It would prove to be the only meaningful chance on goal for the hosts during the second half, as England goalkeeper Jack Butland was not called into any real action for the remainder of the match.
