England U21 vs. Portugal U21 Preview

England

The Three Lions finished their group stage challenges with three wins, and a perfect record. They defeated all of the rivals with the exact same result, 2-0, and the victims were the Czech Republic, Israel and Germany. As you can see, their net was left intact in all these events. 

The most recent victory was against Germany, 2-0, in a match that was do or die for Die Mannschaft, the reigning tournament champs. England was already through, but that didn’t disturb Lee Carsley’s boys.

This team is playing extremely well on both ends of the court, and their biggest weapon is perfect discipline, along with a very fast transition. English lads are physically very strong and can outpace and outmuscle any of the rivals, so it’s no wonder to see them dominating like this. 

Portugal 

Selecao opened the EURO U21 with a loss to the hosts, Georgia, 2-0, which was a major sensation at the time. Everyone knew that the home team had a solid team and the home-field advantage, but just a few believed in their victory. 

After that, Portugal played 1-1 against the Netherlands, and in the final game of the round, which decided who advances to the knockout stage, Selecao was better than Belgium, 2-1. They scored the game-winner in the 89th minute. 

A very interesting piece of data is that the Portuguese unit couldn’t keep a clean sheet during the tournament. For players of their caliber, that is a big underachievement.
