Portugal and Switzerland conquer their groups. Today’s Quarter-finals will decide the four candidates for the title

Once again another day of great intensity and balance in the Under 17 Men WSE Euro. A last qualifying day that decided the two winners of the group stage, namely Portugal for Group A and Switzerland for Group B. The third matchday was opened by the sparkling tie between Switzerland and Germany: both needed at least one point to gain respectively the first and second place. Two goals for Pahud and Tanner for the Swiss, while two goals for Rempke and goals by Keil and Halek (Germany). England signs its first victory in the tournament by beating Andorra who managed to worry the English only in the second half, after two goals from Darbyshire and one from Allen had led to the partial 3-1. Lopez and Hernandez the goals of the Andorrans. Quite easy confirmation for Portugal in Group A: 10-1 the result against France, last in the standings with zero points. Three goals from Honorio, two for Preciso and Duarte, one for Lopes, Franco and Pina. Spain also confirms its place, which in the pit of PalaPietri di Correggio, manages to tame Italy, which appeared more toned than the match against Portugal. Roig broke the 0-0, the Italians nearly equalized several times, but in the final two speedy goals from Andreu closed the match.
Quarter-finals are on the horizon. It starts at 10:00 with France-Switzerland, at 12:00 Spain-England, at 17:00 Portugal-Andorra and at 21:00 Italy-Germany. Whoever wins will have the chance to play for the title on the day of the semi-finals the following day
