    Started today, will try to watch the Portugal game later, think there wasn’t a thread for this.

    Like last edition lots of promising players missing related with the preseason. Time to change the date of this competition.

    Starts far too late, should be the last year it happens this late. England bodged their qualifying group but would have struggled to get a squad together because most would have opted to tour with their clubs.

    A lot already committed to other youth tournaments this summer with the u20 and Toulon tournament being on. Few players not involved for sides here due to being involved with those earlier on. Would imagine England would have had similar issues.

    They would but also players like Gomes, Garner, Greenwood at United would have chosen to tour with their clubs in an attempt to get in the first team reckoning. It happened last year after the World Cup but because some many senior players were on holiday there were loads of youth players in the PL tour squads. Alexander Arnold ducked the tournament in 2017 when England won it to go on tour with Liverpool and try to get in their first team. It worked for him. Then you had Smith-Rowe and Hudson Odoi who had great pre-seasons Last summer which saw them get senior minutes.

    They are moving it to earlier in the summer next year I think.

    Ireland going through to the semis to face Portugal. We've done excellent for a side with so many missing, on top of our u21 and u17 achievement recently.

    O'Connor (captain) and Afolabi, who looks excellent, got screwef by nonsense yellow cards from the ref are out of the semis though.

    The boy Joe Hodge from City looks like a lovely player on a side note.

    A shocking pair of cards. Terrible for the 2 lads and the team in general, I guess...I mean they must be down to the bare bones at this stage. Afolabi just been released by Southampton. Surprising. He's a real handful.

    Think it is two years in a row now the refs have left one of our players in tears due to their sheer incompetence.

    Stick Lee O'Connor into a Pep Barca side and he's got the ability to be a world class CB.

    The keeper being sent off for stepping off his line? Still annoyed about that now. Were the two yellow cards harsh tonight?

    I like Lee but that's hyperbolic to say the least.

    Deserved winners Spain. Ferran looked a different level above anyone on the pitch.

    That looks to be some leap.

    Italy has 5 titles at the under 21 too. Ok maybe you wanted to say added with under 19 titles though. Not important.
