    England 2-2 Germany (3-4 on pens)

    England showed some glimpses of real promise as a team, but after Germany equalised the momentum swung their way. They might have won it in normal time, they might have won it as the game went to 120 minutes, but in the end spot-kicks decided it.

    Germany make it through to Friday's final in Krakow. Spain take on Italy in the other semi-final.

    Robin Clifford: Always good to get practice loosing to the Germans on penalties, will see them well when they're in the Seniors!

    Adam: Great effort by the England lads today and at this tournament. The future is bright!

    George Biggs: Literally rather flip a coin than try to beat Germany on penalties at this point.

  5. 'A heroic effort'

    Terry Butcher

    Ex-England captain in Tychy for 5 live sports extra

    I feel sorry for Nathan Redmond. It was a comfortable save. What a way to lose the game. What a heroic effort from all these England players. They matched Germany - the application and spirit has been magnificent throughout this competition.

  7. Germany beat England 4-3 on penalties

  8. Penalties - Saved: England 3-4 Germany

    Nathan Redmond for England

    Saved by the keeper! A big pair of gloves beats it away. It was central from Redmond...

    Nathan Redmond
  9. Post update

    England have to score...

  10. Penalties - Scored: England 3-4 Germany

    Nadiem Amiri for Germany

    Pickford gets a hand to it but not enough. Amiri wheels away with his finger to his lips.

  11. Penalties - Scored: England 3-3 Germany

    James Ward-Prowse for England

    Ward-Prowse drives it in, high and away from the keeper who again dived the wrong way. Pollersbeck has been looking at notes hidden in his sock.

  12. Penalties - Scored: England 2-3 Germany

    Max Meyer for Germany

    Pickford goes the wrong way this time. Meyer drives it home.

  13. Penalties - Scored: England 2-2 Germany

    Ben Chilwell for England

    See ya later keeps. Chilwell sends him the wrong way, left foot right int the corner.

  14. Penalties - Scored: England 1-2 Germany

    Max Philipp for Germany

    Philipp finds the net - high above Pickford's gloves, good pen. The keeper wasn't getting there.

  15. Penalties - Saved: England 1-1 Germany

    Tammy Abraham for England

    That is poor. Weak. Abraham dribbles his effort to Pollersbeck's right.

  16. Penalties - Saved: England 1-1 Germany

    Yannick Gerhardt for Germany

    Great save from Pickford! Diving to his right he fists it away.

  17. Penalties - Scored: England 1-1 Germany

    Lewis Baker for England

    Nicely done, gave the keeper the eyes, sent him the wrong way, into the corner.

    Lewis Baker
  18. Penalties - Scored: England 0-1 Germany

    Max Arnold for Germany

    Blasted straight down the middle. Pickford went to his right.

  19. Post update

    England 2-2 Germany

    It'll be Germany to take first. Max Arnold has the ball in his hands.

    Here we go...

  20. Post update

    England 2-2 Germany

    Fine words from Mr Butcher.

    England just need to think about Stuart Pearce.

    No, not 1990 Pearce, 1996 Pearce.
