Everton duo Ben Godfrey and Tom Davies missed the final game of England’s Under 21 European Championship campaign last night.

The Young Lions left themselves a mountain to climb, needing to win by two goals against Croatia.

They also needed Portugal to beat Switzerland, which they duly did.

Goals from Ebere Eze and Curtis Jones had England on the brink of going through, before their hearts were broken by a screamer in the 91st minute.

That means that Aidy Boothroyd’s squad won’t be returning in the summer for the knockout stages, with Croatia going through to play Spain.

The Toffees are back in action on Monday night, when they face Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.

Here’s how the injury news went down with some fans on Twitter:
