England U21s settle for 0-0 against Ukraine

16th June 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

England's Under-21s drew 0-0 with Ukraine last night (June 15th), marking the team's second consecutive draw at the European Under-21 Championship.

It comes after a 1-1 draw with Spain last week and means that England are yet to record a victory in their football games at the competition.

England Under-21 coach Stuart Pearce said: "We've played two matches against two really tough sides.

"The only goal we've conceded in that time was a really poor set-play so that side of the game's been pretty good."

Pearce also stated that England's Under-21s have to convert the "odd chance", as they have the talent to score goals.

The result means that England need to win against the Czech Republic on Sunday to proceed to the next stage of the tournament.

In the other game that was played last night, Spain Under-21s defeated the Czech Republic 2-0.
