Mancienne captains England to glory

Mancienne captains England to glory

The England Under-21's side had a much more fruitful day in comparison to their full team compatriots.

While the scorelines were the same, the outcomes were very different.

For the first team, a single point against footballing minnows Montenegro will continue to heap pressure on Italian manager Fabio Capello.

For the Under-21's though, a 0-0 draw was enough to see them through to the 2011 Under-21's European Championships in Denmark.

England held a 2-1 lead from the first leg victory at Carrow Road, so a 0-0 safety saw England qualify, at the expense of Romania who had one of the strongest qualifying campaigns during the group stages, prior to the play-offs.

Michael Mancienne captained the side to glory, while some of his Wolves team mates enjoyed less successful nights.

Jelle Van Damme watched from the sidelines as his Belgian team mates played out a 4-4 draw against Stefan Maierhofer's Austria.

Christophe Berra and Steven Fletcher could only watch on from the bench as Scotland lost to World Champions Spain.

Johnny Gorman was an unused substitute as Northern Ireland drew with the Faroe Islands.

Andy Keogh played the final 20 minutes as Republic of Ireland drew against Slovakia, Kevin Foley watched from the bench.

Wayne Hennessey and Dave Edwards's Wales side were heavily beaten 4-1 by Switzerland.
