Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire scored for England tonight as they beat Serbia 2-0 to progress to the Semi Final's of the European Under-21 Championships.
With 20 minutes to play Derbyshire made his bow in these Championships as a substitute. He made an almost immediate impact with a fine run resulting in a cross to Kieran Richardson six-yards out, but the Manchester United winger shot wide.
It didn't take long for Derbs to get his first chance though and he took it! With a Serbian player injured in the area, England played on with Derbs getting the ball (although this injured player wasn't the player to play him on side anyway!) and after taking one touch he drove home for England's second (Leroy Lita scored the first goal after 5 minutes.)
The goal from Derbs was not taken well by the Serbian side and disgraceful scenes saw pretty much the whole of their side converge on him with a whole host of pushing and shoving going on, but amazingly no red cards issued. (Things kicked off at the final whistle with the Serbs turning on the England players in the tunnel, with racist comments made and Derbs spat at!)
There was a late red card for Tottenham Hotspur's Tom Huddlestone for an off the ball incident (something he said to the referee I think?!?!) with him only just coming on, so he will be out of the next game.
With Derbs' help England advance to the Semi Final's where we will face the hosts Holland.
