Justin Hoyte scored the only goal of the game as England Under-21s beat their Holland counterparts in a friendly in Alkmaar.

The Arsenal defender pounced on a goalkeeping error from Boy Waterman after 12 minutes. Hoyte charged down his attempted clearance before lifting the ball over the Dutch keeper to give England the lead.

Former Arsenal player Quincy Owusu-Abeyie was Holland's biggest threat. He forced a sharp save from Scott Carson six minutes before half time.

Hoyte played the full 90 minutes but another Arsenal starter, Theo Walcott, left the field with seven minutes remaining after sustaining a hand injury.
