and live on Freeview channel 276
Harwood-Bellis states wearing the armband doesn’t alter anything in his game.
He said: “I always come back from England camps on a buzz, because I really enjoy being around the lads and obviously leading the group.
“I’m always confident, I don’t change when I’ve got the armband, I just do what I do, and I think that has got me to be the captain, so I won’t be changing anything.
“I strive to be a leader in the group, and the captaincy means a lot to me.
“I’m hungry anyway, so this doesn’t really add any, but it does give me confidence.
“I enjoy every minute playing for my country, I love it.
“I thought we did well against a tough team, in the first half we could’ve done better, but in the second we came out quick.”
During the second half of the U21s game in Sheffield, Harwood-Bellis came up against his Clarets teammate Jordan Beyer, who was subbed on for Germany in the 73rd minute.
“He’s a really good player, we’ve seen it in training when he first came,” he added.
“He showed his quality tonight, and we will be playing with each other quite a bit.
“We’ll go back to Burnley now and work our socks off heading into the next international break.”
