Blackpool winger Ince defends England U21 flops
Blackpool winger Thomas Ince has defended England's U21 flops.
England were bounced out of the Euros last week with three consecutive defeats.
But Ince told the Mirror: "Look at the campaign that this England Under-21 side has gone through over the last two years to actually get to the Euros - we won nearly every game and we didn't concede that many goals.
"It's very difficult for certain players.
"I wouldn't say it's down to tiredness, but it has been a long season for a lot of the players. Then factor in the travelling and the fact that the games come so quickly.
"Maybe we were not ready for all of that. I don't know.
