Nathan Redmond apologises over England Under-21 penalty miss

Nathan Redmond has apologised for his penalty miss and vowed to conquer the “mental and physical challenge that lies ahead” following England Under-21s’ exit from the European Championships.

The Southampton midfielder’s crucial final spot-kick was saved by Julian Pollersbeck as Germany defeated Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions 4-3 in the shootout in Tuesday night’s semi-final in Tychy having finished 2-2 after extra time.

The miss marked the last kick of 23-year-old Redmond’s under-21 career.

Redmond posted a collage on Twitter on Wednesday evening of himself representing his country at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-20 levels, alongside a statement.
