GAMES The Belgian U21 close the European Championship with a 1-3 defeat against Italy. Substitute Yari Verschaeren scored the Belgian goal with a nice curl in the top right corner.
Sebastiaan Bornauw, Elias Cobbaut and for the first time this tournament also Alexis Saemaekers got a place in the starting eleven from national coach Walem. Saelemaekers was allowed to rest fifteen minutes before time. Verschaeren came in 15 minutes earlier. Ten minutes before the end he brought the tension back into the match at a 0-2 score. In the final phase, Chiesa scored the 1-3.
Although that Chiesa should not have been on the field anymore. Right before half time, he stood consciously on Saelemaekers' hand when he claimed a penalty for a push foul.
