Portugal defeated Italy 4-3 after extra time in the Euro U19 final and Sky Sports’ James Walker-Roberts singles out the most impressive players of the tournament.

Moise Kean – Italy and Juventus

“The 18-year-old has pace – as he showed against France when he raced clear from halfway and coolly finished – and has demonstrated good movement on and off the ball. Kean is currently with Juventus and became the first player born this century to play in the Champions League when he featured against Sevilla as a 16-year-old in 2016.”

Domingos Quina – Portugal and West Ham

“With scouts from Barcelona watching on, Quina impressed for Portugal on the left of a midfield three. The 18-year-old has struggled for first-team opportunities at West Ham after switching from Chelsea in 2016, making just six senior appearances in two years. He was twice named man of the match in the group stages and West Ham might regret letting him go.”

Joao Filipe – Portugal and Benfica

“Five goals, two assists, joint top-scorer at the tournament. It was a summer to remember for Benfica winger Filipe, who was superb in the thrilling win over Italy in the final. Also known as Jota, the 19-year-old is direct with his running, creative on the ball, a threat on the counter-attack and has an eye for a finish, as he showed against Italy.”

Francisco Trincao – Portugal and Braga

“Along with Filipe, it was Braga striker Trincao who really impressed. Like Filipe, Trincao netted five goals (along with three assists) to finish as joint top-scorer at the tournament. He also played a key role in the win over Italy in the final. Trincao, 18, is physically strong, good in the air and appears to have a good understanding of the game around him.”

Mickael Cuisance – France and Borussia Monchengladbach

“Playing in the middle of the pitch, the 18-year-old looks technically gifted and was key in controlling games. His movement is good and he was unfortunate not to score against England when he got into the box and saw a first-time shot brilliantly saved by Ellery Balcombe. Cuisance joined Borussia Monchengladbach last summer and made 24 appearances in the Bundesliga.”
