Italy won the UEFA European Under-17 Championship for the first time with a stylish 3-0 defeat of Portugal in Limassol.

Having lost their previous three U17 finals, and only taken UEFA's junior title in the inaugural edition of the old U16 EURO in 1982, Italy saw off Portugal with two goals from Player of the Tournament Francesco Camarda, as well as keeping their fourth clean sheet in six games.

Portugal's Rodrigo Mora, meanwhile, was the five-goal top scorer in this, the last of the 16-team final tournaments – a format that ran from 2014/15. From 2024/25, the final tournament reverts to eight nations as part of a reboot which includes new-look qualifying and leads to an annual 48-team FIFA U-17 World Cup.

2024 U17 EURO top five goals


  • Italy win a U17 EURO final at the fourth attempt after losing in 2013, 2018 and 2019. They did win the first U16 EURO title in 1982.
  • Portugal lose a U17 EURO final for the first time after winning in 2003 and 2016 against Spain.
  • Italy are the tenth different champions from the 21 editions of U17 EURO (since 2001/02) after Netherlands (4), France (3), Spain (3), England (2), Germany (2), Portugal (2), Russia (2), Switzerland (1) and Türkiye (1)
  • Portugal's Rodrigo Mora was finals top scorer on five goals. The Porto player was already joint-top scorer in the 2023/24 UEFA Youth League with eight goals. Only once before has a player top-scored in a UEFA national-team and club competition in the same season, Joel Queirós, also for Portugal at UEFA Futsal EURO 2010 and for Benfica in their 2009/10 UEFA Futsal Cup success.
  • Portugal became the first team to recover from two down to win a U17 EURO knockout fixture in their 3-2 semi-final defeat of Serbia. Only once before, in a group game, had this been achieved in any U17 EURO finals match.
  • Hosts Cyprus became the 42nd current UEFA member to make their U17 finals debut. Albania will increase that to at least 43 when they host the 2025 finals.
