England Under-21 goalkeeper Dean Henderson says he and his team-mates have let their country down after their early exit from the 2019 European Championships.
The Manchester United youngster was at fault on Friday as he allowed the ball to roll between his hands for one of the goals during the 4-2 defeat to Romania.
Aidy Boothroyd’s men were beaten in stoppage time by France in their first game in Italy and the Three Lions will now head home after their final match of Group C.
England had gone into the tournament as one of the favourites, but they have failed to deliver despite having made giant strides in the last few years.
Henderson, Fikayo Tomori and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have all been guilty of making mistakes this summer and the former claims his team need to learn their lessons quickly.
He said: “Whoever goes on to win the tournament we know we can beat them as well. It is a shame. “We have let ourselves down. We have let the country down. We know exactly what went wrong. It is tough to take.
“Adapting to little things like VAR, it is tough. But it is tough for everyone. No excuses. We have to dust ourselves down and we go again.
“It is a shame because we said in the team huddle that for some of us it will be the last opportunity to play in a major tournament for England. “With the group of players we have really under-achieved. We wanted to come here and win this tournament.”
With England now out of the tournament, Germany and France are both 3.50 to lift the trophy this summer.
