England Boys 'Doing It' For Taylor!

Last updated : 19 June 2009 By Footy Mad - Editor
Newcastle United defender Taylor has been forced out of the squad because of an Achilles injury he picked up in the relegation run-in.

The 23-year-old was left devastated by the club's drop in to the Championship, and his spirits were not helped by missing this summer's competition for the young England side.

England reached the semi-finals last night with a superb 2-0 win over Spain.

Pearce: "Steven is a big loss. He was absolutely crestfallen not to be involved.

"He's been a big part of the team for three years, and I'd like to win the trophy for him as much as anything."
