England Under-21s have come from behind to earn a 1-1 draw with Finland Under-21s in their 2015 European Championship qualifier in Tampere.

The point has lifted Gareth Southgate's side up to third place in Group 1 with eight games remaining.

Despite a positive start for the visitors, Finland took the lead in the 15th minute when Moshtagh Yaghoubi fired in a free kick from 25 yards.

England responded strongly as James Ward-Prowse and Wilfried Zaha were both denied before half time.

The away side finally got themselves level with around 20 minutes left thanks to Saido Berahino's simple finish following a quick counter-attack.

England were reduced to 10 men in the 75th minute when captain Andre Wisdom was shown a straight red card for a reckless challenge on substitute Lorents Hertsi.

However, England were able to hold on for a valuable point against the group leaders.
