Quina's Portugal secure European Championship final place


West Ham United youngster Domingos Quina played almost an hour as Portugal U19s secured a place in the U19s European Championship Final with a 5-0 win over Ukraine. 

A devastating first half an hour for Quina and his teammates saw Portugal storm into a 5-0 lead, with the first goal coming just two minutes into the contest, as Thierry Correia poked home from close range after goalkeeper Vladyslav Kucheruk could only parry a shot into his path. 

On 19 minutes, the lead was doubled as João Filipe slammed an effort into the roof of the net, before the forward then netted his second just a few moments later, racing through the Ukrainian defence and slotting home to put Portugal 3-0 up. 

Another two finishes, this time courtsey of Trincão Francisco, would put the game to bed 15 minutes before half-time, and long before the final whistle. 

The West Ham midfielder was substituted after 57 minutes, making way for Nuno Santos, and has played in all three of his side's contests so far.

It was an impressive showing for the Portuguese youngsters, one that secured their place in a fourth U19s European final, with Quina and his teammates playing either France or Italy in Sunday's final.
