Stuart Pearce suffered more penalty misery as England Under-21s lost a marathon shoot-out to Holland in the semi-final of the European Championship.

Leroy Lita had put Pearce´s youngsters ahead in Heerenveen but Maceo Rigters levelled with an overhead kick with a minute remaining to set up extra-time and penalties.

In a clinical shoot-out, players had to take penalties twice and Anton Ferdinand´s miss ultimately allowed the holders and hosts to win a 32-kick contest 13-12.
