OptaJoe: 52 - Thiago made more passes than any other player in the Spain v England #EuroU21 match, completing 87%. Playmaker.

OptaJoe: 100% - Javi Martinez has completed all 24 passes attempted in the opening 25 minutes for Spain U-21 v England. Precise.

17 minutes into the Ukraine - England game for those who are interest. Czech against Spain ended 0 - 2.

Anyone knows why Albrighton isn't playing?

Spain vs Ukraine and England vs Czech up for anyone interested.

Spain formation:
De Gea, Montoya, Botia, Dominquez, Didac, Mata, Alcantra, Herera, Munian, Adrian

England:
Fiedling, Walker, Smalling , Jones, Bertrand, Henderson, Maumba, Sinclair, Sturridge, Cleverly, and Welbeck.

It's worth noting that Yarlemnko [ highly rated Ukraine player ] is playing in their game against Spain..he hasn't lived up to his hype in this tournament.

Thiago Alcantra, now that's one guy that will be big..really big. The comparisons with Xavi are true, but only to a certain point. He's much more of a mobile player when compared to Xavi...he's sort of a mix between Iniesta and Xavi. He can give great passes and he has enough skills to take on players and get himself away from trouble. I really hope Barcelona make the mistake by selling him, and we'd be there to get him. Amazing player.

Was going to ask you your opinion about the game as I'm watching Spain. I'll probably watch a bit of England in the second half, they need a win to make it through...a draw will see Czech qualify to the semis with Spain.

He was decent, nothing spectacular I would say. That's not his mistake though, Spain are doing a lot of passing..and it's more about passing and team play than individual brilliance, Ukraine have been easy to break that way. [ this is from the first half, don't know now..I'm watching England ]

England fail to make it through. They took the lead, but then conceded two. It's Spain & Czech from Group B to the semis.

Bollocks. England in the lead and the Czech Rep. score in the 88th minute (jammy). Then they get another when we were all out attack in the 93rd minute.

Welbeck scored our goal - a great one too. Had about 8 players around him on the edge of the box, moved around them at put the ball outwide. Cross came in and he got the header.

He's the only English player to score in the tournament

Welbeck, Sturridge and Smalling look a class above.

The problem with this English team is that they do have good players, but most aren't made to play together. I'm totally not convinced with the Welbeck + Sturridge partnership..it's a shame though since both are talented. The midfield is meh..only names..no one can actually create a decent chance and they are all just solid..there's not right mixture there. Defense is quality though.
