- Stoppage-time save helped England win
- Trafford knew he would stop penalty
- Set to join Burnley from Man City
WHAT HAPPENED? Trafford saved a penalty from Abel Ruiz in stoppage time which helped England clinch the final 1-0 and win the Euro U21 championship for the first time since 1984. The Manchester City goalkeeper, who turned hero for his team, later suggested that he had a feeling that he would stop a penalty in the game and had even mentioned the same to his friends back home.
WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to Channel 4 Sport after the game, Trafford said: "I told everyone this morning I was going to save a pen. I knew I would save. It was pretty easy really. I told all my mates back home I was going to save one.
"The clean sheet record means a lot to us because it would take a massive effort to get broken. We are a very good team and we believe nobody can score against us and we showed that."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Trafford enjoyed a brilliant outing in this tournament with England winning the title without conceding a single goal in the competition.
