Trio share Under-19 top scorers' prize

Lithuania's Gratas Sirgedas, Anass Achahbar of the Netherlands and Portugal forward Alexandre Guedes have finished as joint top scorers with three goals apiece at the finals.

Lithuania's Gratas Sirgedas, Anass Achahbar of the Netherlands and Portugal forward Alexandre Guedes have finished as joint top scorers in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship with three goals each in the final tournament.

Sirgedas and Achahbar scored all their goals in the group stage, when Guedes struck twice and was also on target in Portugal's semi-final defeat by Serbia. The trio therefore share the prize having finished ahead of eight players who managed two goals, including Serbia's Andrija Luković, match winner in the final against France.

A total of 22 players managed one effort each, although the U19 finals record of six goals, set by Spain's Álvaro Morata in 2010/11, remains unmatched.

Achahbar was the season's overall top scorer having also registered six times in qualifying for a total of nine goals. Borko Veselinović's haul of 11 for Serbia and Montenegro in 2004/05 is still the highest total for a single campaign.
