U21 National Team Tournaments!

As you might have noticed, there are no less than three U21 National Team tournaments in full swing right now!

The 1st round of the group stages have been played in the U21 Confederations Cup and the U21 European Cup in Football, as well as in the qualification for the U21 World Cup in Hockey.

It is always both exciting and interesting to watch the best young Players from around the world face each other in the different environment that is the national team.

Who will be the next big star on club level, and in the Senior National Teams?

Another great aspect of the U21 National Tournaments is the unpredictability. A good generation of young Players can raise almost any country to become a medal contender!

All in all 58 matches were played in the first round of the three tournaments and we were treated to many well played matches, and a few surprising results.

In group 8 of the U21 European Football Championship, Ireland defeated Romania, a match where most people probably held Romania as the favourites. The deciding moment of the match came in the second half when Ireland was awarded a penalty and Romania got a player sent off for a "last man foul". Ireland's Ultan McStephen made no mistake from the spot and his team could go on and win the match 4 goals to 1.

In group 1 of the U21 Football Confederations Cup, Panama were facing Brazil, one of the tournament's medal candidates. Panama fought valiantly throughout the match and despite winning the shots with 21-3, Brazil only managed to score twice in a match that ended 2-1 to Brazil. In the end a shaken Brazil could still leave the pitch with the 3 points everyone had expected them to take.

Finally, in the U21 Hockey World Cup Qualification Israel managed to get a draw against a strong Portuguese team in group 8. Israel's goalkeeper Ogen Malco was literally bombarded with shots, but made 16 saves and was a strong factor in that the match ended 3-3.

The 2nd round of the three tournaments will be played on Saturday at 20:00 (CET). Don't miss out on the fun!
