Under-21s: 'Massive miss' if Pearce's tyros fail to reach finals

The deflection off the Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand that allowed Romania an away goal in the first leg of Friday night's European Under-21 Championship play-off at Norwich could have serious consequences for English football. Even though Manchester United's Chris Smalling subsequently scored a late goal for a 2-1 victory, England Under-21s are under pressure going to the back of beyond for Tuesday's return game, which offers a passport to next summer's finals in Denmark.

When I was supporting Ray La Montagne I was six months pregnant. He had been touring for a year and he was exhausted and full of the cold. I was feeling motherly, so I would leave presents for him and his band: Tunnock's Tea Cakes, cold remedies and proper tea. Ray seemed painfully shy. He hardly spoke, hardly looked at you in the face. I felt like a dick speaking to him, but said "hi" every day. </p>
<p>
He was being courted by the same record company who had signed me and subsequently let me go, and I wanted him to know that there were people around who didn't want anything from him. At the Shepherds Bush Empire in London, on the last night of the tour, Ray stopped in his set to thank me for doing the support. He said I was a really good songwriter and people should buy my stuff. I was taken aback and felt emotionally overwhelmed. Later that year, just before I had my boy Louis, I was l asleep in bed with Radio 4 on when Louis moved around in my belly and woke me up. Ray was doing a session on the World Service. </p>
<p>
I really believe that Louis recognised the music from the tour, and when I gave birth to him at home I played Ray's record as something that he would recognise to come into the world with. </p>
