Euro U-19 Championship

Portugal power past Poland to kick off Euro campaign in style

Portugal opened their U-19 European Championship in some style when they eased past Poland at the Tony Bezzina Stadium on Monday.

It was a classy performance from the Portuguese side who were always in control of the match and all but sealed the points with a goal in each half.

Portugal made a strong start as they took just four minutes to forge ahead.

The Portuguese side were awarded a corner kick and Gabriel Bras rose over his marker to power his header into the net.

The goal rattled the Polish side who struggled to fight back against a Portuguese side who always looked threatening each time pushing forward.

Portugal sealed the points on the hour mark when Hugo Felix lit up the stadium with a fine strike, under the watchful eyes of his brother Joao, who was among the spectators.

The young forward sped past his marker to hit a firm drive that flew into the net via the upright.
