Italy take on Portugal on Sunday in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship final, live on Sky Sports Football from 5.25pm.

Italy beat France 2-0 in the semi-finals, while Portugal eased into the final after a first-half blitz secured a 5-0 victory over Ukraine.

The final, in Seinajoki, Finland, will kick off at 5.30pm BST.

Italy have not won the annual tournament since a victory over Portugal in the 2003 final in Liechtenstein, but this is Portugal’s third final in just five years.

They were beaten by Germany in 2014 and England last summer, but head coach Helio Sousa says his side are fully focused on the task in hand.

Portugal beat Ukraine 5-0 in the semi-finals

“We play every game like a final and we now just have one more final,” said Sousa.

Italy were losing finalists in 2016, going down 4-0 against France in Germany, but they did win the group stage meeting between the two sides just over a week ago.

England failed to make the knockout stages in Finland, beaten 5-0 by France in their final group game, before missing out on a place at the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland following a 3-0 defeat by Norway on Thursday.

Watch the UEFA European Under-19 Championship final between Italy and Portugal live on Sky Sports Football from 5.25pm on Sunday.

HUNGARIAN GP QUALIFYING: LEWIS HAMILTON MASTERS THE RAIN TO TAKE POLE

Lewis Hamilton has solidified his position as the new Regan Meister. (RAIN MASTER) No luck just pure skill…..period! Stop saying the rain saved the Mercs because frankly everyone on that track had a chance to take pole position. Give the Merc boys a break and recognize the true talents!

If Newcastle don’t change owner asap then im sure next summer they will be selling this guy for 9million. He seems a ood defender who will add great strength to the back line but I just hope they don’t sell Lascelles and use this guy as his replacement. And what Newcastle need is a real number 9 I like the guys that have up top as second strikers and impact subs but they need a lead the line striker that’s going to get them 15 goals in the prem league and that’s the hardest thing to find in football it seems
JURGEN KLOPP V JOSE MOURINHO: TRANSFER SPENDING COMPARED

The income LFC have, would suggest they’ve sold Better players, i.e. players more key to the team.Moreover, United have played larger fees for a number of years, while LFC have only really started in january, with VVD. I’ll also suggest that Uniteds wagebill is significantly higher than LFCs, although that is a guess. LFC are essentially trying to catch Up to the other top clubs, who have been spending absolute fortunes for years and years.

JURGEN KLOPP NEEDS A TROPHY AT LIVERPOOL BUT THE SIGNS ARE GOOD

If as has been stated there has been steady improvement then winning a trophy this year isn’t a necessity. There are only three domestic trophies up for grab. Only a few can be expected to contend for the league but there are several teams who could win a cup. Winning any trophy in England is hard. This is why some managers attempt to take pressure off their own team my placing it on others.

This player would be a wonderful investment to our Squad and would be a future legend. If Mr Levy wants to do something right for a change just go out now and buy him and stop playing silly games that seem to be your Stock and Trade
MERCEDES EXPLAIN LEWIS HAMILTON’S PIT-STOP CONFUSION AT GERMAN GP

Just reading on another site that Lewis having watched the reply days following the race went on twitter to express his displeasure at the Sky (ex F1 drivers) commentary team for their lack of appraisal towards him after the victory in Germany….Now I watched the race but was with a group and did not catch most of the commentary but what I did hear after the race was nothing but complimentary from the same so I am not sure where he got that from.

Come on Brundle you’re too kind to Vettel and unwilling to really give Hamilton any praise..You don’t like him i get that but credit where credit is due..It was a great drive by Hamilton once again showing what he can do in the rain.

So in other words contract negotiations are proceeding normally between club and agent. Just like any other.But for some reason Sky seem to want to stir things and make a drama out of it – on another page they even say Ramsey is stalling. Absolute nonsense!This is football – not a soap opera! I would say you disappoint me Sky but I’m so used to this stuff that now I read and just roll my eyes…
WOULD SELLING ADEMOLA LOOKMAN TO RB LEIPZIG BE A MISTAKE BY EVERTON?
nwoo2002

I think if you ask most Evertonians, they’d tell you they want Lookman to stay. He’s still raw but the negatives in his game, tracking back, loose balls etc, will improve in the coming two years; if he’s as humble and proactive in improving as a player as this report suggests.The vibe I’m getting from this piece is that, especially in light of Everton’s latest signing, Lookman will likely move on. It’s all hearsay. We clearly signed him for a reason. It just adds further weight to the arguement that Sam Allardyce was incapable of progressing the team to let such a good young prospect go on loan when, during his time in charge, he was a potential first team starter. Look at the FA cup tie at Liverpool, for example. I personally don’t think he wants to go and would just want to see some sort of commitment from Everton to take his development further.
WHY IS RETAINING PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE SO DIFFICULT?
Mandymoo Smith
6d
If you include all the stats & not just the Premier League, there has been 24 times the title has been retained in 119 years, so that’s about 20%, which is quite regular IMO. But if you just include the Premier League, it’s even higher at 23%.
