Pearce: Man Utd signing Jones proving a colossus

England U21 boss Stuart Pearce was full of praise for new Manchester United signing Phil Jones after their stalemate with Ukraine.

The result leaves England needing victory against the Czech Republic in their final group match to reach the European Championship semi-finals.

And Pearce said: "Our destiny is still in our own hands and it's going to be a very interesting last match. We have to win, but we're capable of that. You bring players to tournaments so they can learn to perform under pressure. We've had two tough games, two draws, and conceded only one goal from a set-play.

"We've defended very strongly and Phil Jones put in an outstanding performance for us. He was a colossus."
