England Under-21s reached the semi-finals of the European Championships but the 2-0 victory over Serbia was scarred by racism and violence.

Leroy Lita had headed Stuart Pearce´s youngsters ahead early on before UEFA officials were forced into an impromptu anti-racism announcement after Serbia fans abused Nedum Onuoha.

Matt Derbyshire added a second 13 minutes from full-time in Nijmegen but his celebrations in front of the Serbia fans sparked a mass brawl that involved most of the players.
