Danny sees Young Lions through

Danny Rose played his part as England U21s booked their place at next summer's European Championships in Denmark with a Playoff victory over Romania.

The Young Lions went into Tuesday's second leg in Botosani with a 2-1 advantage from the first game in England last Friday.

And despite late pressure from the home side, Stuart Pearce's men held firm to book their place in the Finals for a third time running.

Danny played 82 minutes on the left hand side of midfield and came to life in the second half, putting in some decent delivery, while Daniel Sturridge and Tom Cleverly both forced saves from the home goalkeeper.

England were runners-up to Germany at the last European Under-21 Championships in 2009, the tournament at which Danny made his debut at this level.

Kyle Walker will also be hoping to be involved in Denmark, but was an unused substitute over the two legs of this Playoff.
