The main character was Cole Palmer. Palmer scored the team’s second goal in the 18th minute of the second half. He also scored 1 goal and 2 assists, assisting both Morgan Gibbs White’s opening goal in the 42nd minute of the first half and Cameron Archer’s key goal in the 45th minute of the second half.
Following a 1-0 victory over Portugal in the quarter-finals, England easily advanced through the semi-finals and advanced to the final. This is the first final after a runner-up in 2009. After winning consecutive titles in 1982 and 1984, the early days of the competition, England has never reached the top for nearly 40 years.
Meanwhile, Spain beat Ukraine 5-1 in the semi-finals at Stadionul Steaua in Bucharest, Romania. After conceding the opening goal, he scored 5 goals.
All 5 goals for Spain were scored by different players. Braga’s Abel Luis, Athletic Bilbao’s Oian Sanchet, Alaves (Old side Real Madrid)’s Antonio Blanco, Osasuna’s Aimar Oros and Manchester City’s Sergio Gomes scored.
The team name common to both teams is Manchester City. England’s Palmer is preparing for the upcoming season’s main competition by starting in two league matches and five cup matches in the 2022-2023 season. England’s attacking lineup includes Emile Smithrow, who once played for Arsenal, Morgan Gibbs-White, a fixture at Nottingham Forest, and Anthony Gordon, who made headlines after transferring to Newcastle United for a huge amount of money.
Among the Spanish scorers, Gomes is also one of Manchester City’s top prospects. As a promising wingback who went through Barcelona and Anderlecht, he joined Manchester City last season and made 10 starts, including cup competitions. In the second half of the season, the performance declined, and Man City lost its place as they used tactics without wingbacks, but they are preparing for a rebound with the U21 Euro as a turning point. In this tournament, he is playing as a midfielder, not a wingback, and is recording the joint highest score of three goals.
The final between the two teams will be held in Batumi on the 9th.
