Latics left back Leighton Baines played his part in the England under 21 win against Serbia tonight.
England opened the scoring through a ‘poachers` header from Reading striker Leroy Lita.
Matt Derbyshire made the score two nil in controversial circumstances.
A Serbian player was down injured but the Blackburn Rovers star played on and cracked the ball into the net.
What followed was disgraceful as the Serbian players charged at Derbyshire and a mighty commotion took place.
Strangely enough only two players were booked one being James Milner who was obviously trying to calm the situation down.
Tom Huddleston was sent off for abusive language to the assistant referee following a foul by Baines.
From the resultant free kick Bainesy cleared the ball off the line ensuring a clean sheet and progression to a semi final match against host nation Holland.
Well played Bainesy and well done to England
