Internationals: Rose dismissed in face of racism

Internationals: Rose dismissed in face of racism
IT WAS an eventful night for England`s U21s as they secured their place as next summer`s U21 European Championships in Israel.

Sunderland loanee Danny Rose started the match at left-back for Stuart Pearce`s side, but was dismissed after the final whistle for a second yellow as he rightfully reacted angrily to racial abuse from sections of the Serbian crowd.

The Black Cat`s number three had been booked in the first half, but was dismissed for a second booking as chaos ensued at the final whistle.

Fellow Sunderland man Connor Wickham got the decisive goal, seizing on an open-goal with the Serbian 'keeper prone in the Three Lions` penalty area as the hosts desperately sought an equaliser.

A Craig Dawson goal in the first leg meant that England progressed to the finals as 2-0 winners.

Seb Larsson was involved in an astonishing game in Berlin as Sweden came back from 4-0 against Germany to secure a priceless 4-4 draw at the Olympiastadion.

Larsson started the match in which the Germans roared into a four-nothing lead thanks to a brace from Miroslav Klose and one each from Per Mertesacker and Mesut Ozil.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic got the comeback started in the 62nd minute before further goals from Mikael Lustig, Johan Elmander and Rasmus Elm grabbed an unlikely share of the spoils for Larsson and co.

The Sunderland winger was replaced in the 78th minute by Tobias Sana.

It was a good night for the Republic of Ireland too, who ran out 4-1 winners in the Faore Islands.

With the pressure mounting on Giovanni Trapattoni, goals from Marc Wilson, Jon Walters, Darren O`Dea and an own-goal won the tie for the Irish.

Keiren Westwood started in goal with John O`Shea at centre-half. David Meyler came on in the 91st minute to replace Keith Andrews.

Wales were unable to build on their victory over Scotland on Friday night, going down 2-0 to Croatia in Osijek.

Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring after 27 minutes before Eduardo completed the job in the 58th minute.

David Vaughan played the full 90 minutes for Chris Coleman`s side.

The final home nation in action was Scotland, beaten 2-0 in Belgium.

Goals from Christian Benteke of Aston Villa and Vincent Kompany of Manchester City dispatched with Craig Levein`s side, who included Steven Fletcher from the start once more.

The Sunderland forward was powerless to resist another defeat for his side and was replaced by Kenny Miller with 14 minutes remaining.

Ji Dong-Won was not involved for South Korea, whilst Adam Johnson and England saw their match in Warsaw against Poland fall foul of the weather. The fixture has been re-arranged for 16:00 tomorrow.
