Trott's England win U19 Euros

Nathan Trott


Nathan Trott became the ninth West Ham United played to win the UEFA U19 European Championship as England beat Domingos Quina's Portugal 2-1 in the final in Georgia.

Keith Downing’s Young Lions made history in Gori on Saturday as second-half goals from Aston Villa defender Easah Suliman and Manchester City striker Lukas Nmecha – either side of Dujon Sterling’s own goal – were enough to secure a hard-fought victory.

Trott was an unused substitute but has played his part on the training pitch as Keith Downing's Young Lions won England's third age-group trophy of the summer - including Dan Kemp's access at the Toulon Tournament.

It also caps a sensational 2017 tournament record for the men’s development teams after 23 victories from the 27 games played from the U17s upwards.

A crowd of 4,100 were present in Gori to see England prevail at the scenic Tengiz Burjanadze Stadium.

Quina started for Portugal - as he did in their four previous matches - but the attacker ended up on the losing side as Trott and England celebrated a famous victory.

He follows John Sissons, John Charles, Martin Britt, Harry Redknapp, Kevin Lock, Alan Curbishley, John Ayris and Paul Allen in becoming a Hammer to be crowned a European U19/Youth/U18 champion.
