Rob Hall had his UEFA European Under-19 Championship hopes ended as England were beaten 2-1 by Greece at the semi-final stage.

The West Ham United forward started for Noel Blake's team in their last-four clash in Tallinn, Estonia, but endured a difficult day as Greece won through after extra-time.

The Greeks took the lead when Mavroudis Bougaidis headed in a corner shortly before half-time, only for the Young Lions to be handed a massive boost when Stefanos Kapino was sent off for bringing down Benik Afobe.

Unfortunately for Hall and England, the 18-year-old could not take advantage, seeing his penalty kick saved by substitute goalkeeper Sokratis Dioudis.

Despite being down to ten men, Greece held firm as the Young Lions missed a succession of chances to win the game in normal time and were rewarded when Charalambos Lykogiannis scored a 108th-minute winner.

Greece will face Spain, who edged out France on penalties in the other semi-final, in Sunday's final.

Hall, meanwhile, will fly back to England today and could be part of West Ham's squad for the pre-season match at Southend United on Saturday.

The forward tweeted on Friday morning: "On my way home and I still have a bitter taste in my mouth! I need to recover for the game tomorrow."
