The Portuguese national under-18 team defeated France 4-2 in the second round of the French championship in Limoges.
After the defeat in the first appearance against Spain (2-0), the “Kina” team had a poor start in the match. Pirringuel opened the scoring after seven minutes.
However, Portugal managed to make a great comeback and equalized before the break through Eduardo Santos, in the 29th minute. In the second half, Jorge Meireles, Lucas Anjos and Samuel Justo, in the 48th, 55th and 62nd minutes, completed the transformation and gave a tone of defeat to the mark.
The best thing El-Ghal managed to reduce was by Bouanani in the 64th minute.
In the final match of the tournament, the Portuguese national team will face the Swiss national team on Sunday.
