Heroic Trafford: England Won UEFA Euro U21 Thanks to the Fearlessness of Their Goalkeeper

In the final match in Batumi, the England national U21 team became European champions, beating Spain 1-0. Throughout the tournament, England displayed a solid defense and, thanks to a penalty kick save from James Trafford in the ninth minute of stoppage time, they were able to win the trophy for the first time since 1984.

Curtis Jones deflected a free-kick from Cole Palmer to score the goal that gave England the lead shortly before half-time.

However, the second period became a real battle for England as tempers flared. James Trafford created an iconic moment in the closing seconds by saving a shot from Abel Ruiz and then brilliantly deflecting a try from Aimar Oroz, who came on as a substitute.

After that, Antonio Blanco and Morgan Gibbs-White were sent off in a tight final, but Lee Carsley’s team managed to win the title after 112 minutes of play.

This incredible final in Batumi ended in triumph for England thanks to Trafford’s save. The victory earned them their first European Under-21 Championship title since 1984!
