England were denied a place in the European Under-21 Championship final as they lost a gripping semi-final against Germany on penalties.

Julian Pollersbeck saved Nathan Redmond’s spot-kick as the Germans edged through in Tychy, Poland.

Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions had fallen behind when Davie Selke headed home, but Demarai Gray levelled the scores.

Tammy Abraham made it 2-1 to England with a tap-in but Felix Platte’s header took the game to extra time.

Germany will face Spain – who beat Italy 3-1 – in Friday’s final in Krakow.

Not for the first time, an England team is left to reflect on what might have been after losing a semi-final against Germany on penalties.

It happened at Italia ’90, when Chris Waddle and Stuart Pearce faltered from the spot, and at Euro ’96, when Gareth Southgate’s penalty was saved.

On Tuesday, Boothroyd’s team were 20 minutes from a place in the final when Platte equalised following a corner.

In an action-packed game, Salke had put the Germans ahead when he met Jermey Toljan’s cross, before Leicester’s Gray was well placed to equalise after Germany failed to deal with Ward-Prowse’s corner.

Will Hughes teed up Abraham to give England the lead and both teams missed chances to secure victory in extra time.
