There were only three shots before the break. This is not a meeting particularly worth watching. But that was the case before the intermission, because the second half was hit hard at the beginning. The German took advantage of the defensive indecision in the 48th minute. Ridle Baku faced Lukas Nmech who ran into the clearing, who defeated Diogo Costa a few meters away. For Portugal, which had won 12 consecutive victories, this was the first time they had to chase the result in this championship.
-We may not have the capable generation like four years ago, but it is still a good team. It’s very balanced, so everyone here feels very much needed-before the final, Stefan Kuntz praised his team, he has been the coach of the German U-21 team since September 2016. On Sunday, he advanced to the final for the third time. This was his second win because there were no goals in the Ljubljana stadium in the second half. After a quick goal, the Germans are ready to fight back. Although they rarely lead them out, they defended their goals well.
Kunz joined the German national team in 2017 (includingin. With Serge Gnabry, Maximilian Arnold, Janik Hagerer and Thilo Kehrer). Subsequently, he defeated the Spaniard 1-0 in the final. Two years later, he faced them again, but then the Spaniard won 2:1.
