ENGLAND’S Under-21s were sent crashing out of the European Championship in heartbreaking late fashion in Viborg last night when their Danish dream was ended by two last-gasp goals.
After taking the lead in a game they had to win through Daniel Welbeck’s 76th-minute header, England – with the semi-finals staring them in the face – fell apart when substitute Jan Chramosta equalised on 89 minutes.
England needed another goal, but then Czech replacement Tomas Pekhart rubbed salt into the gaping wound with a stoppage time tap-in.
It was a cruel blow for the youngsters as they did perform well in the tournament but the dull draw against Ukraine saw the them pay a heavy price today.
Still there is hope for the young Lions with the likes of Jones, Smalling, Muamba, Walker, Welbeck and co showing a lot of promise, they need to learn to kill off games and hopefully they lean it sooner rather than later.
