UEFA European Under-21 Championship Roundup

While the senior national teams are busy battling it out at the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers games looking to secure their spots at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the younger players are handling their own business at the European Under-21 Championship. The tournament is full of surprises already judging by the results of the games that were played on Saturday. While Denmark, Russia, Switzerland, and Portugal have started their businesses on the right foot, teams like France and England still need some improvements to do.

The quartet of Switzerland, Denmark, Russia, and Portugal could be on their way to the quarter-finals of the competition already even with a game each to spare as the tournament looks to unfold more eventful surprises on Sunday. Shockingly, France and England are having a bad time, and both headline the list of teams that could suffer early elimination from the competition. The other teams that are in this precarious situation include Croatia and Iceland.

In Group C, Russia could confirm their passage to the next round if they can defeat France and Denmark avoid defeat against Iceland. Denmark, however, will go through if they secure victory against Iceland and Russia do not taste defeat against France.

In Group D, Portugal will gain access to the next round as long as they can beat England and Switzerland are not beaten by Croatia. Switzerland will secure passage to the best stage if they defeat Croatia and England are not able to defeat Portugal.

Switzerland defeated England on Thursday thanks to a tie-deciding goal from Dan Ndoye, and they will be looking to continue their good run when they take on Croatia in their next Group D fixture on Sunday.
