The music world has been reacting to the national side's defeat to Italy after tense penalty shoot-out in Kiev.

Will.i.am has confessed that he wanted England to win "so bad" in last night's quarter final Euro 2012 match against Italy.

The 'This Is Love' star took to his Twitter account throughout the game and was cheering on the squad during the penalty shoot out – which they eventually lost 4-2 following a 0-0 draw after extra-time in Kiev.

"I never tought I would say this...but let's go ashley cole...!!!," he tweeted as the last England penalty was hit.

He added: "I was watching the game with my heart racing the entire game...I wanted england to win so bad..."

Olly Murs was equally as disappointed at the result but conceded the better team won the night.

He wrote: "Frustrating to see us lose!!! But the ITALIANS were different class.... PIRLO magical!! We should have had SCHOLES in Squad!!!"

Olly's recent Soccer Aid 2012 teammate Aston Merrygold of JLS rallied the country to focus on the next tournament and praised Ashely Cole despite his crucial penalty miss.

"Minor england did well.. ashley Cole... Still the best left back in the world!! Sh*t happens! Head up onto the next one! Ax," he tweeted.

The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes believed the team were "unlucky" in their efforts and admitted he holds manager Roy Hodgson in high regard for the way he organised the team.

"We were unlucky. We were not the best team but its the most organised I have seen an england team for a few years. Roy did good," he wrote, with band mate Max George adding: "Gutted about england.... But thought we did ok...."

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson watched the match from America as the band continue their US tour and joked about the fact Ashley Young and Ashley Cole failed during their penalty attempts.

"Note to the next England manager, anyone with the first name Ashley should not be trusted to take a penalty," he said.

Meanwhile, Will.i.am is the brand new Vodafone Big Top 40 number one with his new single 'This Is Love' which he premiered for the first time in the world last month on Capital FM.
