Despite this stunning training ground goal, the U21 English squad like their senior counterparts in the World Cup crashed out of the Euro. All the highlights were crammed in the last 15 minutes off the second half as Danny Welbeck's header gave England the lead.
Just when it looked as they would get past the Czech Republic for a semi-final berth the defense caved in horribly under pressure and gave up two goals. Jan Chramosta and Tomas Pekhart were the beneficiaries. The latter scored on the last touch of the match.
Afterwards Stuart Pearce said England lacked doggedness. One would have thought that was the only thing they had left. Still there is talent in Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck. Man Utd's future centre pair of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones also looked good. Henry Lansbury's display is worthy of Arsenal senior squad consideration. However, Jordan Henderson his competition in midfield looked very, very ordinary. That £20m spent on him could come back to haunt Liverpool.
