England U19 held to Italy stalemate

England's European Under-19 Championship hopes are hanging by a thread following a goalless draw with Italy in Jablonec.

Brian Eastick's team must now beat Greece in their final group game on Sunday and hope the Czech Republic maintain an unbeaten record in Pool B by avoiding defeat against the Italians at the same time.

Eastick can certainly take heart after a much improved performance from their tame loss to the Czechs on Monday but once again failed to find a cutting edge in front of goal.

The absence of injured Manchester United man Danny Welbeck is certainly causing Eastick a problem, with Kieran Gibbs coming closest to getting a winner when he struck the bar after just 14 minutes.
