England U21 coach, Aidy Boothroyd has reacted to his side’s exit from the ongoing European championship.

England defeated Croatia 2-1 in the last game of the Group D on Wednesday but it was not enough for the Young Lions to progress to the quarter-finals.

England lost their two opening games to Portugal and Switzerland and needed to beat Croatia 2-0 to secure a place in the next round.

Crystal Palace Eberechi Eze opened the scoring for England with an early penalty and Curtis Jones doubled the Young Lions’ advantage as they looked on course to secure their progression

But Domagoj Bradaric fired a long range shot to beat England goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale to reduce the deficit and sent Croatia to the quarter-finals.

Speaking to Sky Sports in his post-match interview, Boothroyd said, “I’ve been criticised for not being creative but I thought tonight we were very creative in everything we did.

“We hit the crossbar twice, we missed chances we’d normally take and we scored two goals.

“We gave ourselves a mountain to climb and we almost did it but unfortunately we lose out by one goal. They’re the fine margin, they’re the things they have to learn.

“It’s devastating right now but an experience like this stays with you forever and it will benefit them in their careers which is what the Under-21s is all about. It’s a development team.”
