Portugal Handed Group of “Death”


The Portuguese Under-17 team is pitted against Spain, France, and Switzerland in this May’s 2010 UEFA Under-17 Championship. Liechtenstein host the finals tournament, which will be held between the 18th and the 30th of May. Spain won the 2007 and 2008 editions of the tournament, so they’re going to be our biggest threat. Switzerland reached the semi-finals last year, and France was in the 2008 final, so that is why the Portuguese Under-17 coach appropriately dubbed our group the group of death. But even if we don’t do well, this is the first UEFA Under-17 championship we have qualified for since 2004, so that in itself is an accomplishment.
