Portugal are dreaming of becoming three-time winners after previously lifting the European Under-17 Championship trophy in 2003 and 2016.

Although they will be targeting silverware, Portugal's current focus will be on avoiding a second consecutive group-stage exit.

After losing their opening game in 2023, they would have been pleased to begin this year's competition with a 2-1 win over Iberian rivals Spain.

Portugal came from behind to claim a narrow victory thanks to goals from the Porto duo of Cardoso Varela and Rodrigo Mora.

As a result of that win, Portugal have now recorded four consecutive victories in all competitions, scoring 12 goals in that period.

England are looking to improve upon their performance from the 2023 tournament when they were knocked out of the quarter-finals by France.

The Three Lions also lost to France in a qualifying game earlier this year, but they managed to avenge that result in Tuesday's tournament opener on Tuesday.

Tottenham Hotspur's Mikey Moore scored either side of a Baylee Dipepa strike to give England a three-goal lead at the break, before Ethan Nwaneri added a fourth in the second period.

Impressively, the Three Lions have now scored four or more goals in three of their last four matches, ensuring they will carry significant momentum into their second group game.

This current crop of players will be looking to continue England's impressive record in the group stage, with the Three Lions aiming to reach the knockout rounds for the ninth time in their last 10 appearances at the European Under-17 Championship.

Prediction: Portugal 1-3 England
