England scored a dramatic victory over Spain in the final

The England U21s are crowned UEFA Euro U21 2023 winners with a 1-0 victory over Spain in the final match of the tournament.

Led by Lee Kersley, the team finished the tournament with a clean sheet. However, if there was some kind of drama at the end of the final, there was a possibility that the title would be taken away. Spain were given a penalty in stoppage time and stoppage time. VAR played a big part in awarding penalties. Abel Ruiz took the penalty, but James Trafford had other ideas. Manchester City’s young goalkeeper saves the decisive spot-kick as England clinch their third EURO U21 title.

These tournaments often help players break into the club’s starting eleven and gain recognition in football. Several names have been named for the occasion at the 2023 Euro U21 tournament.

We have selected 11 players to compete in the Team of the Tournament for the UEFA EURO U21 2023 Tournament. These players stood out throughout the tournament and received a lot of attention. Let’s take a look at the best 11.

Formation: 3-4-3

Goalkeeper: James Trafford (England) – 6 clean sheets

James Trafford was arguably the best UEFA Euro U21 goalkeeper in 2023. The 20-year-old finished the tournament clean sheet and made 15 saves, including a penalty save in the final. He is a Manchester City player and will likely play for Burnley in the 2023-24 season.

LCB: Juan Miranda (Spain) – 2 goals, 2 clean sheets

Juan Miranda is an attacking full-back who plays for Real Betis. The former Barcelona academy player contributed two goals in five games. He posed many threats to Spain from the left flank and was probably the most attacking full-back in the competition.

CB: Levi Colwill (England) – 5 clean sheets

Levi Colwill looks set to be a future centre-back for England. The Chelsea youngster has made an impression during his loan spell at Brighton for the 2022/23 season. He had an impressive run in the UEFA Euro U21s, finishing the tournament with five clean sheets.

RCB: Taylor Harwood Bellis (England) – 5 clean sheets

Another England youngster for Manchester City, who led the team to the championship. Taylor Harwood-Berris and Colwill formed a strong partnership in the English rear. He played for Burnley last season and could spend another season under Vincent Compagny.

LM: Sergio Gomez (Spain) – 3 goals 2 assists

Manchester City sent several international players to the final, including left-back Sergio Gomez. But the 22-year-old took on a more attacking role, contributing five goals in a similar amount of games. He is the UEFA EURO U21’s all-time top goalscorer. The ex-Barcelona academy graduate won the treble with City.

LCM: Curtis Jones (England) – 1 goal

England and Liverpool’s Curtis Jones scored the winning goal in the final. A lucky departure from his back was enough for his team to lift the trophy. Jones has made it into Liverpool’s first team and Jürgen Klopp has given him plenty of starts. The 22-year-old controlled midfield in five appearances and led his side to UEFA EURO U21 2023 glory.

RCM: Georgiy Sudakov (Ukraine) – 3 goals

The 20-year-old midfielder is now the tournament’s all-time top goalscorer. Sudakov scored twice against one of the favorites France to take Ukraine to the semi-finals. He was a regular at Shakhtar Donetsk last season and several clubs will be eyeing the young talent.

RM: Morgan Gibbs-White (England) – 1 goal, 3 assists

Another British player who made an impression throughout the tournament. Morgan Gibbs-White has made a big-money move to Nottingham Forest for the 2022-23 season. He contributed four goals in UEFA EURO U21.

RW: Cole Palmer (England) – 1 goal, 3 assists

Cole Palmer has already made his mark on the big stage at Manchester City. The 21-year-old had a smooth operation on the field and his free-kick led to the winning goal in the final. Palmer is also a Triple Crown winner for City.

Abel Ruiz had a great tournament, but a missed penalty in the final ended his trophy hopes for his home country. Another former Barcelona youth player contributed five goals. He plays for Portuguese club Braga. Lewis is the competition’s best number 9 and the club will be keeping an eye on him next season.
