Young Cumbrian goalkeeper Dean Henderson could do little to prevent England's Under-21s from falling to another European Championship defeat against Romania which means they are all-but out of the tournament.

Whitehaven-born Henderson had starred in the Young Lions' opener against France and looked on course for a clean-sheet tonight in Cesena, with the game goalless after 75 minutes.

But the former Carlisle Academy keeper then conceded four times in the closing stages, as England were beaten 4-2 and that means they are all-but out of the tournament after back-to-back losses.

George Puscas' penalty broke the deadlock and Ianis Hagi also scored for Romania but Demarai Gray and Tammy Abraham twice levelled, only for 22-year-old Henderson to let Florinel Coman's shot through his hands before the midfielder added a fine fourth.

The defeat saw Aidy Boothrody's selection gamble backfire as he benched Phil Foden after his fabulous solo goal against France, with Boothroyd wanting to manage his minutes despite the midfielder starting just 15 games since August.

England end their Group C campaign against Croatia on Monday.
