  • England U21 2-2 Germany U21 (Germany win 4-3 on penalties)

England's hopes of reaching the European Under-21 Championship final were dashed after they lost their semi-final against Germany on penalties.

Former Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond, who now plays for Southampton, missed the decisive spot-kick to send the Germans through as Aidy Boothroyd's side were beaten in the cruelest possible fashion.

England had recovered well from falling behind in the normal 90 minutes as goals from Demarai Gray and Tammy Abraham gave them a 2-1 lead, but Felix Platte's late equaliser took the game to extra-time.

Norwich's Jacob Murphy came on as a substitute but was unable to inspire his team to a winning goal which meant that the match went to penalties.

Lewis Baker, Ben Chilwell and James Ward-Prowse did manage to convert their efforts, but Redmond couldn't follow suit as England's long wait for a penalty shootout win over Germany goes on.

Norwich City youngster Ebou Adams has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on a six-month loan deal.

The 21-year-old midfielder moved to Norwich from non-league outfit Dartford in 2016, and has been a regular in the club's under 23s team.

He helped the Canaries reach two cup semi-finals last season, but is yet to make his first team debut at Carrow Road.

We think this is Ebou’s best opportunity to get games under his belt in senior football until January. It’s a really good loan – Shrewsbury are a good club and Paul Hurst is a good manager and someone who I know really well.

We know they’ll look after him in the way we’d want them to, and we felt this was too good an opportunity to turn down.

– Richard Money, Norwich City Academy manager

Long-serving Norwich City goalkeeper Declan Rudd has joined Championship rivals Preston North End for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old, who had two successful loan spells at Preston earlier in his career, has agreed a three-year deal at Deepdale.

The move brings to an end an 18-year association with the Canaries for Rudd who joined the club's academy at the age of eight.

Coming back here is something that has always been in my mind. When I was on loan here a few years ago it felt like home to me and everyone made me feel welcome and wanted.

The last three or four years I’ve been here, there and everywhere and I’m happy to finally come back and get things underway.

– Declan Rudd, Preston North End
