England crashed out of the European U21 Championship as they lost 3-1 to Italy to finish bottom of Group B.

Andrea Belotti and Marco Benassi scored within two first-half minutes, after Danny Ings had already spurned a glorious chance and Harry Kane saw one effort well saved.

Gareth Southgate’s men were unable to find a way back into the game, and Benassi added his second of the night before Nathan Redmond struck in injury-time for little consolation.

Italy’s win wasn't enough to see them through, though, as Portugal and Sweden drew 1-1 to both go through and knock the Azzurri out.
