Lúcio Jr: 'A dream come true'

Portugal captain Lúcio Rocha ended as UEFA European Under-19 Futsal Championship top scorer on five goals.

Ahead of the final, Ukraine's Maksym Malynovskyi and Dmytro Rybitskyi were joint leaders on four, but Player of the Tournament Lúcio Jr struck twice in Portugal's 6-2 win against Spain to overtake them.

Lúcio Jr also struck against Spain and France in the group stage, as well as adding the semi-final winner versus Slovenia before his double in the decider. In all, he appeared in 11 U19 Futsal EURO games for Portugal (including 2022 and 2023 qualifying) and scored in nine of them, his career tally of 12 the all-time best.

On Matchday 1 against Italy, Malynovskyi became the first player to score in multiple U19 Futsal EURO final tournaments, and the next day he hit a hat-trick against Slovenia. Rybitskyi managed three on Matchday 3 versus Finland and then registered in the semi-final loss to Spain.

For the season as a whole, Blend Krasniqi of Kosovo was top scorer on ten, getting all his goals in qualifying, including two against Portugal. Malynovskyi and Slovenia's Alen Ruis finished two goals behind.
