Southampton’s Nathan Redmond issues heartfelt apology, fans react

While the majority of footballers are enjoying the end of their holidays, Southampton’s Nathan Redmond has been down in the dumps following the England’s exit from the Under-21 European Championships.

The 23-year-old was part of Aidy Boothroyd’s squad in Poland, and they seemed to take inspiration from the Under-20s World Cup win as they managed to get to the semi-finals.

However, it was not an easy task against Germany, and it proved once again that England struggle to overcome these particular opponents on penalties.

In normal time, Demarai Gray and Tammy Abraham scored, but a 2-2 draw resulted in the tie going to extra time, but neither side could find the breakthrough.

The contest descended into penalties, and it was Redmond who had to score in sudden death, but his spot-kick was saved by Julian Pollersbeck.

His failure to convert sent Germany into the final, and after reflecting on the defeat, the Southampton man took to Twitter to apologise to the fans.

Plenty of fans reacted to the tweet by sending their support to Redmond.
