David James' howler sent Portsmouth crashing out of Europe as they tumbled to a heart-breaking 3-2 UEFA Cup defeat in Wolfsburg.

Edin Dzeko fired the hosts into an early lead before Pompey hit back through Jermain Defoe and Arnold Mvuemba, although Christian Gentner levelled things up before the break.

James then gifted the Germans a third in the 74th minute when Zvjezdan Misimovic took the ball from his feet and rolled it into the net - although the England man partially atoned with a penalty save from the same player five minutes later.
