Southampton's Nathan Redmond missed the crucial penalty as England agonizingly lost on penalties to Germany in the semifinals of the European U21 Championship in Poland on Tuesday.

Germany goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck saved Redmond's spot kick to consign England to a 4-3 defeat in the shootout after the match had ended 2-2 at the end of 90 minutes and extra time, AFP reported.

The Germans will face Spain in Friday's final in Krakow after a brilliant second-half hat trick from the Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez handed Spain a 3-1 win over 10-man Italy in the night's other last-four tie.

Spain is bidding to win the continental title in the age group for the fifth time and equal Italy's record in the process. Germany's only previous triumph came in 2009 when they outclassed England in the final.
