Morrison & Zaha England Under-21s spat resolved - Redmond

Ravel Morrison and Wilfried Zaha have resolved their differences after an on-field scuffle during Tuesday's 5-0 victory over Lithuania, according to Nathan Redmond.

Following a John Stones header which went for a goal kick, Zaha appeared to engage his team-mate as he trotted back into position, causing the pair to exchange words before Morrison pushed his team-mate in the face.

Redmond came between the two and had to further restrain Zaha to stop him continuing the spat, and the Norwich City man insists the duo have now put the disagreement behind them.

"It was just a bit of a disagreement, nothing else," Redmond told reporters. "We got back in the changing room and sorted it out.

"You get that with teams everywhere, there is just a bit more of spotlight on this incident because it was for England. We sorted it out behind the scenes.

"Rav's a class player, sometimes he just has to move the ball a little bit quicker. Sometimes you do get a little bit frustrated with him but you just have to let Rav be Rav because of the things he is capable of."

The clash is yet another low point in Morrison's already somewhat controversial career, having been sold from Manchester United reportedly due to off-field issues.

Despite the impressive victory, new England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate admits that he has a lot of work to do to ensure that there is unity in the squad.

Speaking in relation to Tuesday's incident, Southgate told reporters: "It's my job to bring them together as a group, which is going to be a test. We spoke about being a team before the game. We know the potential of the group of individuals.

"The key now is how we come together as a team and that will take time because there is a lot of focus on individuals. Sometimes there is pressure on individuals and one or two of those had a point to prove and did that very well."
