Everton's £30m signing Jordan Pickford saved a late penalty as England opened their European Under-21 Championship campaign with a draw against Sweden.

The 23-year-old stuck out an arm to stop Linus Wahlqvist's poor spot-kick and also saved Carlos Strandberg's tame follow-up.

However, it was an underwhelming display by England, who only had one effort on target.
