England Under-21s lack character and creativity

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.

The Czechs now meet Switzerland in one semi-final tomorrow, while the favourites Spain play Belarus.
