Young West Ham pair aim to set up Euro U19 final showdown

Domingos Quina


West Ham United pair Domingos Quina and Nathan Trott will attempt to set up a UEFA European U19 Championship final showdown on Wednesday afternoon.

The two Hammers will be in semi-final action in Tbilisi, with victory for both Quina and Trott seeing the pair go face-to-face in a potentially mouth-watering final in the Georgian capital on Saturday.

Quina will take on the Netherlands at the David Petriashvili Stadium after the Dutch finished second to Trott’s England in Group B, before the Young Lions will tackle the Czech Republic at the Mikheil Meshki Stadium.

Attacker Quina has started all three group matches for Portugal, who defeated the host nation 1-0 and Czech Republic 2-1 before drawing 2-2 with Sweden. Should he go all the way, the 17-year-old will add a Euro U19 winner’s medal to the U17 title he won last summer (pictured, above).

Goalkeeper Trott, meanwhile, has had to make do with a place on the substitutes’ bench for England’s group-stage victories over Bulgaria, Netherlands and Germany, with AFC Bournemouth stopper Aaron Ramsdale being preferred between the sticks by head coach Keith Downing.

The two semi-finals will both take place today, with Portugal versus the Netherlands at 2pm BST and England taking on the Czechs kicking-off three hours later. Both ties will be screened live by British Eurosport.

The final will take place on Saturday 15 July.
