For 14 short minutes on Sunday night, England were heading for a third successive semi-final in the European Under-21 Championship; but in far less convincing fashion than on the two previous occasions. Danny Welbeck's goal in the 75th minute was only their second in three matches and when the previously impressive defence made one slip it brought a crucial equalising goal for the Czech Republic, who needed only a draw to qualify and ended up scoring again with the last kick of the match. The Czechs now meet Switzerland in one semi-final tomorrow, while the favourites Spain play Belarus.

Manchester City's FA Cup parade was soured last night by the absence of Wembley man of the match Mario Balotelli, who ignored the club's instructions to join the open-top bus tour before fans who had waited 35 years for silverware. City manager Roberto Mancini stood accused of affording special treatment to Balotelli by granting him dispensation to miss the parade and also the club's player of the year awards on Sunday night, where he was named young player of the year. Micah Richards collected the prize for the 20-year-old striker.

There was a kind of mocking to the very end. It was one thing to know that Sir Alex Ferguson was jigging around the Blackburn pitch celebrating a title while Roberto Mancini led his team out, but quite another to have the Wembley Stadium announcer select "We Are The Champions" to play just before kick-off.
