Aston Villa winger Milner: England U21 players are hurting

Aston Villa winger James Milner admits England's players are hurting after their 4-0 defeat to Germany in last night's U21 European Championship final.

"Everyone is hurting and the way we lost the game is not good enough," said Milner.

"The lads are disappointed. It all comes down to the big games and there are no excuses but hopefully this will make us stronger.

"We expected to put in a performance and it is pointless if we don't learn from it. It feels worse than two years ago because it was a final and we wanted to win it.

"We are a very good team but fair play to Germany and they know how to beat the big teams."
