England's appeal against goalkeeper Joe Hart's booking in the European Under-21 Championship semi-finals has failed.

Hart was shown a yellow card for unsporting behaviour during England's penalty shoot-out win over Sweden.

A previous booking meant the 22-year-old was automatically suspended for Monday's final against Germany.

Either Scott Loach or Joe Lewis will play in his place. Loach played against Germany in the group stage when boss Stuart Pearce rested several players.
