Trott & England Are EURO U19 Champions

Nathan Trott and his England teammates won the European Under-19 Championship title for the first time in their history after beating Portugal 2-1 in Saturday's final in Georgia.

Trott was an unused substitute in the match, but will forever cherish the moments.

Aston Villa defender Easah Suliman headed England in front early in the second half after a free kick Mason Mount had hit the post.

A sliced own-goal from Chelsea right-back Dujon Sterling saw Portugal level before the hour.

Keith Downing's side, though, secured a memorable victory when Manchester City forward Lukas Nmecha swept in after 68 minutes following a powerful run from Mount down the right.

England finished the match with 10 men after Fulham's Tayo Edun collected a second yellow card in the 86th minute, but it was not enough to deny them.

The triumph follows on from England's success at the Under-20 World Cup and Toulon Tournament, while they also reached the final of the European U17 competition and saw the U21s make the semifinals of their European Championships in Poland last month, losing on penalties to Germany.
