Arsenal’s Josh Dasilva features as England win U19 Euros by beating Portugal


Arsenal midfielder Josh Dasilva came on as a second-half substitute as England U19s beat Portugal 2-1 today to win the European Championship for their age group.

Easah Suliman put England in front before an own goal from Dujon Sterling saw Portugal equalise.

It was England who prevailed, however, with Lukas Nmecha scoring the winner and the Three Lions held on to win despite Tayo Edun being sent off in the closing stages.

Dasilva is now set to be given time off before returning to Arsenal next month.



  1. From this England squad, I think the players with high ceilings are Mason Mount(Chelsea), Andre Dozzell(Ipswich), Ryan Sessegnon(Fulham), Trevoh Chalobah(Chelsea) and Marcus Edwards(Tottenham). Jay da Silva(Chelsea) is fairly promising but I am not sure if he can cut it at the highest level. The likes of Brereton, Nmecha,Buckley-Ricketts, Edun,Sterling and Suliman are good but not something special.

  2. Great to see all these England youth sides performing, just hope they get the chance to develop and progress. But more importantly that they get their heads right, being a pro footballer is not about wearing massive headphones, listening to gangster rap, playing fifa and driving the most expensive car. It’s about dedication, commitment and hard work.

    1. Atid, you forgot to mention Nightclubs and Girls.
      I played football against Paul Ince at schoolboy level. He was good but nothing special, however his girlfriend (later wife & mother of his kids) kept him out of trouble and made him concentrate on his dream of being a professional football player.
      Without her, he’d have ended up as a shelf stacker at the nearest supermarket…
