Dalot suffers final heartbreak at U21 Euros

Dalot played every minute of the tournament, starting at left-back in the first three fixtures – wins over Croatia, England and Switzerland in Group D, matches which were played out in March.


In the knockout stage, the 22-year-old switched to the right flank, and was instrumental in both defence and attack as Portugal overcame Italy and then Spain to set up a decider with Germany.


Sadly, Dalot and his colleagues were unable to find the net, despite good chances for Vitinha, Tiago Tomas and Dalot himself. Nmecha made them pay in the second half, when he rounded goalkeeper Diogo Costa to settle the contest.
