Europen action

A convincing 3-0 victory over Georgia in Lagos paved the way for qualification for the 2011 European U-19 Championships in Romania. Needing only to draw with Greece in the final Stadium of the Algarve encounter on Saturday, a seventh-minute Pipo strike made sure that Velios’ second half equaliser was not enough to prevent the young Portuguese national team from taking their place at the finals next year.
