12 players to watch at the Under-21 European Championships 2011

timthumb.php


The 2011 UEFA Under-21 European Championships get underway this weekend in Denmark. This year’s edition includes some surprise names, such as Belarus and first-time qualifiers Iceland, as well as some big name absentees like Italy, Holland and 2009 winners Germany who all failed to qualify this time around. As always at Just Football, we like to keep a close eye on emerging stars around the world. Here are 12 players to watch out for:

We're not playing well at all here. Smalling is the only player who looks any good. Welbeck/Henderson/Cleverly/Sturridge can't get into the match.

welbeck scores 1-1

Edit: FT 1-1
welbeck had a great 2nd half

martinez probably spains best

vila should have stayed @ milan to learn how to defend.

I watched Spain vs England. Many players that people would recognize:

From Spain: De Gea (Man Utd), Didac (Milan), Thiago (Barcelona), Jeffren (Barcelona), Mata (Valencia).

From England: Smalling (Man Utd), Jones (Man Utd), Henderson (Liverpool), Manicienne (Chelsea), Welbeck (United), Sturridge (Chelsea).

England are very disappointing. Not that I expected anything from them, but seriously the future looks dim for them as usual. :D Players are picked based on sheer physicality, they're all absolutely brainless and lack a lot in technique.

For me most impressive players were:

From Spain: Javi Martinez, Ander Herrera, and Mata.

From England: Kyle Walker, Smalling, and Rose (though he ran out of gas in the second half).

Seriously Barcelona must be stupid if they are willing to spend 35 million on Fabregas when they have Thiago. This kid's potential is scary.

Henderson was absolutely worthless though. Can't believe Liverpool paid that amount of money for him.

Clear offside. Simple tap-in though.

He had a shit match. Very aggressive fouling (was lucky not to get a 2nd yellow), and pretty much useless. Lack of service didn't help him though.

He still was better than Sturridge.

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.

:eek:

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.
