Heartbreak for Baines and England

England under 21 side went down in a dramatic penalty shoot out against the Dutch tonight in the semi final of the European Championships

Bainsey started the game but didn`t return for the second half following an injury he picked up.

Lita gave England the lead after 39 mins smashing home a left foot shot only for the Dutch to equalise in the 89th minute.

Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor showed tremendous courage playing all of extra time so injured he was almost unable to walk.

With no more score following the final whistle at the end of extra time it went down to the dreaded penalties which Holland won with an unbelievable 13-12.

A gutsy display from the England kids and they were desperately unlucky to lose in such dramatic circumstances.

Did you enjoy the game?

England defence played their heart out. I was really impressed with our own Hoyte and the Man city defender Onuoha. But you must say holland out played them. 70% possesion for the dutch says it all. But the whole england team showed some super heart.

I think they did a fantastic job, i dont think i have ever seen so many penalties, it was two fingers to their manager last night when he insisted that Steven Taylor take the penalty despite being injured that was great
