Cristiano Ronaldo could play for Portugal at 2016 Olympics - FPF

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Paul Mariner share a laugh at Cristiano Ronaldo selling his image rights to the Valencia owner.
Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed reports in Spain that he is disillusioned with life at Real Madrid.

Portugal could take Cristiano Ronaldo to the 2016 Olympic Games as an overage player, according to the president of the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF).

Olympic rules permit each team to nominate three players born before Jan. 1, 1993, in their squad for the football tournament in Rio de Janeiro, which will take place between Aug. 3-20 next year.

That would mean Real Madrid star Ronaldo, 30, would be able to represent the senior side at Euro 2016, which runs from June 10 to July 10, before joining...

Portugal coach Rui Jorge wary of Sweden strength in Euro U21 final

Portugal thrash Germany to advance to the U21 European Championship.
Sweden Under-21 striker John Guidetti and head coach Hakan Ericson look ahead to the European Under-21 Championship final against Portugal.

Portugal coach Rui Jorge is taking nothing for granted ahead of his side's European Under-21 Championship final with Sweden.

Portugal beat Germany 5-0 on Saturday to make the Prague showpiece and as such seem the favourites to take the title.

Jorge, though, does not see it that way, telling a news conference: "I think they think we are very strong as we have shown here, and they think of us what we think of them.

"To reach the final you need quality and therefore we are playing a strong team.''

Portugal put five past Germany to reach U21 Euros final against Sweden

Portugal thrash Germany to advance to the U21 European Championship.

Portugal and Sweden both cruised through the semifinals on Saturday to set up Tuesday's Under-21 European Championship final.

Luis Figo and Rui Costa may have stumbled in the final 21 years ago, but it will take a lot to stop Portugal's current crop from triumphing if their 5-0 mauling of favourites Germany is anything to go by.

What was supposed to be an intriguing semifinal battle between the tournament's brightest lights ended in a one-sided masterclass from Rui Jorge's side at the Ander Stadium.

England lose 3-1 to Italy, both teams out; Portugal, Sweden draw to advance

A brace from Marco Benassi earned Italy a 3-1 victory over England but was not enough to advance to the semi-finals of the U-21 European Championships.

England have once again fallen short at a major tournament after Gareth Southgate's side capitulated against Italy. The Young Lions' 3-1 defeat means a third successive group-stage exit at the Under-21 European Championship.

A year to the day since a goalless draw with Costa Rica rubber-stamped the senior team's disastrous World Cup, the new generation blew a golden opportunity to progress to the semifinals in the Czech Republic.

England's destiny was in their own hands after the last-gasp win against...

Gulf in class leaves England adrift of Portugal in Under-21 opener

Joao Mario managed to score the only goal of the match, as Portugal defeated England 1-0 in the UEFA Under 21 European Championship.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not take anything away from Jack Wilshere's two goal performance against Slovenia, but picks at Adam Lallana's dive where it appears not many are talking about.
The England U21 squad arrived in the Czech Republic for the European championship. Alex Pritchard says the team are in good spirits ahead of their opening game on Thursday.

If this was the England of the future, then it looked disturbingly like those of the past. Already, the under-21 team's chances of progressing beyond the group stages of the European Championship lie in serious doubt.

As at the senior level, a distinct gap in technique between England and their Portuguese opponents proved the difference. The young Englishmen were driven to the type of distraction that befell their older brothers during major tournament exits in 2000, 2004 and 2006. Once Portugal...
