Lee Carsley’s men were utterly ruthless in Group C as they topped their mini-table with three wins from three, beating Czech Republic, Israel and Germany while keeping a clean sheet in each contest. Portugal meanwhile limped through their group in second, with just the single win from their three games.

The Young Lions produced three successive 2-0 victories, with their triumph of Germany being the real statement result as Antonio Di Salvo’s side crashed out winless. Having not won this competition since the 1980s, Carsley will certainly feel his side have a real chance of ending that protracted drought.

Portugal lost their opening game to Georgia and then drew 1-1 with the Netherlands, casting serious doubt about their chances of progression. They seemed to be on their way out in their final game, but Benfica midfielder Tiago Dantas struck a last-minute penalty against Belgium to see them through over the Netherlands.
