England’s Elite League squad suffered late heartbreak as Portugal’s last-minute winner handed a 2-1 defeat to the Young Lions at Stadium MK.

Portugal had opened the scoring at the home of MK Dons during the first ten minutes, but Olympique Marseille’s young Englishman Emran Soglo levelled the game midway through the first half.

Alfie Devine’s cross from the left met with Soglo at the far post, who turned in the delivery from close-range.



The home side had located the back of the net once more, but the goal was ruled out by the referee who pulled it back for a foul on the opposition’s goalkeeper.

Within the fourth minute of added injury time, the visitors had regained their lead.

Moments after the second setback, the final whistle indicated the end of the game as England’s Elite Squad suffered their second defeat within the league competition.

As the conclusion of the international break nears, England’s Under-20s team will return to Euro Elite League action next month where they will face Italy at the Eco-Power Stadium before travelling for their following fixture against Italy.
