Stuart Pearce's young England side followed up their 3-0 beating of Montenegro earlier in the week with a 2-0 away victory against a spirited Bulgarian U-21 side and despite picking up his second booking in two games Mark was happy with how the trip went.

"It has been a great start to the tournament, we came away determined to get six points which we did and also got two clean sheets and scored five goals so we couldn't have asked for more really, it has been a really successful trip.

"I am unfortunately suspended for the next game at home to Montenegro but will be back in the squad for the match against the Republic of Ireland which I am already really looking forward to."
