He said: “Gutted to have lost in the semi final on pens. Sorry. I will continue to keep learning from these experiences and try to improve every day.

“There is work to do and I’m OK with the mental and physical challenges that lie ahead.

“I’m forever proud to wear the Three Lions shirt on my chest.

“I am sad to close a chapter on my England youth team football in that was but I’ve gained more than I’ve lost right through from U16 to U21.”

Redmond thanked the “entire” FA operation in Poland from manager to security guard who has “helped me learn and grow as a person and a player.”
