Hello and welcome to today's big international match between England U21 and Portugal U21. There is a real party atmosphere in England and no where more so than here in West Yorkshire, where football fever has taken over. There is an obvious police presence here today, but officials are not expecting any trouble. Now let's get over to the stadium for the kick off...

Tonight's match official is Edilio Augusto, born in Brasil and he belongs to the Distrito Federal association. He has a reputation for letting the game flow, but has been criticized for being too lenient sometimes and there is a chance players will try to get away with a few cheeky fouls.

Min.3, Jonathan Kilpin put a cross in towards Alan Buckingham at the front post, but Jonathan Carvalhal came and made a superb punch out in a difficult position. Min.4, Joey Lennon makes a good run in from the right touchline, before going 1-on-1 with Ilídio Mantas, who eventually wins the ball and clears it away. Min.9, England U21 nearly scored. Alan Buckingham ran onto a great ball from Vinnie Carrick, which beat the offside trap, the keeper came rushing out and the lob was attempted, but the lob didnt succeed. Min.28, Linvoy O´Brien spots Joey Lennon breaking free from his marker, but his attempted pass into the space in front is easily intercepted by the defence. Min.33, Vinnie Carrick sent a long ball towards Joey Lennon however Jonathan Carvalhal decides to come from his area and calmly hoof it back up the field. Min.38, Alan Buckingham can't get away from Israel Rufino and loses the ball before he has the chance to send a cross in. Min.41, disastrous pass by Lívio Castelo Branco who tries to pick out Belarmino Dantas, but the receiver could do nothing to control the ball. They will not create too many chances with that sort of slap dashery. Min.44, Gooooool !!!, Vinnie Carrick sent a good through ball into the path of Joey Lennon who instantly fires past the keeper. Now the score is 1-0. The stadium can't stop clapping and cheering Joey Lennon due to the fantastic goal that opens the scoreboard

Min.45, the refs blown up for half time before the allocated injury time has been played and now he's sprinting off down the tunnel, guess he's been caught short. The current score is 1-0. The home team had 83 %. possession of the ball.

Min 46, home team are attacking via the by the center and protecting their goal via the without special attention in any area. The away team is focusing its attacks on the by the right side and its defense by the center. Min.48,' England U21 pardom it. Alan Buckingham hunt a clearance of Jonathan Carvalhal but he sent it outside.' Did he really Manuel? Thanks. Min.51, Gooooool !!!, Gareth Gerrard sent a long ball towards Alan Buckingham whose first touch takes him away from the defender and a beautiful finish past Jonathan Carvalhal completes that basic route one move. So simple, yet so effective! The scoreboard is now 2-0. The supporters went totally crazy when their team scored again and extended the lead. It's not over yet. Min.55, Vinnie Carrick slipped in between the centre backs and his shot has been deflected away for a corner off Nadir Festas . Vinnie Carrick thinks there was a hand used there and is letting the ref know that he thinks that. Min.56, corner put in by Gareth Gerrard, it's not a very good one though, high and straight, an easy one for a keeper of Jonathan Carvalhal's calibre. Min.60, Joey Lennon loses the ball to Florival Lampreia who takes advantage of the situation and charges down the field in opening up a scoring opportunity. Oh and he's wasted what could have been a real chance there. Min.61, the counterattack was led by Custódio Vilaça. He tries to lob the keeper who has left his area however the ball goes just wide of the post. Min.63, Gooooool !!!, goal scored by England U21. Great inside pass by Alan Buckingham to Joey Lennon, who tried to dribble past Jonathan Carvalhal inside the area but the keeper of Portugal U21 cleared it. In the clearance, very careful, Linvoy O´Brien appeared and made the 3-0. The fans were celebrating the victory over their arch rivals. The stadium kept on shouting the name of Linvoy O´Brien until the late hours of the night. There are even rumours that fans are planning on tattooing the name of the goal scorer. They are really crazy. Min.71, Vinnie Carrick ran through the entire defence almost, he dribbled past about 4 men there and he was so close to replicating Giggs' memorable FA cup goal but Rui Águas put a crucial block in and deflected it for a corner. Min.72, corner put in by Gareth Gerrard, it's not a very good one though, high and straight, an easy one for a keeper of Jonathan Carvalhal's calibre. Min.78, Belarmino Dantas made a good run through the middle of the field which took him into the opposition half with plwnty of options, however he pondered on it for too long and Linvoy O´Brien stole the ball off him and played the ball out to start what could be a dangerous counter attack. Min.79, Jonathan Carvalhal has to the corner to challenge Joey Lennon for the ball but erm, he failed. Fortunately for him, Nadir Festas of Portugal U21 has got across to cover him and plays it safe and gives away the corner.

Min.90, The whistle has been blown, ending the game at 3-0. The home team had 88 %. possession of the ball.
