Tactical Analysis: England 1-0 Portugal | Anthony Gordon’s Goal | Euro U21

Let’s analyze England’s goal against Portugal to qualify for the semifinals of the European Under-21. The play begins with Gomes in possession trying to get Portugal’s defensive block to jump on him. Jacob Ramsey appears behind the midfielders, receives the ball and becomes the key player in the goal.

He drives to the edge of the box and decides to give a good pass to the right where Madueke receives. Good vision from the Chelsea footballer who puts a pass into space for Gibbs-White.

It’s this moment in the play where Ramsey makes the perfect movement off the ball. Ramsey runs dragging 2 Portugal players leaving the defense too deep inside the box and Gordon is free to score the goal and knock Portugal out.

England is one of the 4 best teams in the championship.
