Lessons from the European U21 Championships as Sweden won it all

Relive Sweden's celebrations following their dramatic win over Portugal on penalties in the U21 European Championship final.
Sweden won their first Under-21 European Championship defeating favourites Portugal in penalties after a 0-0 draw in regular time.

With the Euro U21 Championship complete and Sweden crowned as champions, John Brewin looked back at the final itself and a couple of key lessons from the tournament at large.

Sweden won their first Under-21 European Championship defeating favourites Portugal in penalties after a 0-0 draw in regular time.

Sweden's organisation, spirit and tenacity saw them upset the odds and secure their first-ever European Under-21 Championship at the expense of overriding favourites Portugal.

Fresh from condemning Germany to their heaviest ever defeat in the semifinal, few thought the Scandinavians would be capable of stopping Rui Jorge's side. After all, the Swedes were the only team England managed to beat.

Yet an incredible, battling display frustrated Portugal and took the match to penalties, where William Carvalho...

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.

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.''
