England Under 21s lose to Germany

England players look dejected

England's Under-21s were crushed 4-0 by Germany in the European Championship final in Malmo.

The Germans went ahead when Mesut Ozil got past Martin Cranie and crossed to Gonzalo Castro, who sent the ball home.

Soon after half time, goalkeeper Scott Loach was tricked by a free-kick from Ozil, and sent the ball into the net.

After England's Lee Cattermole hit the bar, Sandro Wagner connected with a pass from Ozil to get a third and also curled in Germany's fourth.
