Liverpool centre back Tiago Ilori came within a penalty shootout of capping his impressive under-21 European Championships with a trophy.
The defender put in another standout performance for Portugal in the final against Sweden, keeping a clean sheet as the game ended a 0-0 draw after extra time.
Ilori was composed throughout, completing 91 per cent of his passes and making 13 clearances, as he battled to keep John Guidetti quiet.
He took on Tottenham and England's Harry Kane and came out on top early in the tournament, and has shown since that display was no flash in the pan.
Ilori was signed from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon two seasons ago, and has been on loan at Granada and Bordeaux ever since.
With a new season on the horizon, Ilori will be hoping he has done enough to earn a shot at the Liverpool first team, whose defence was inconsistent last season, and at times just plain awful.
Here is a look at how supporters reacted to his display...
Ilori will definitely take over from Skrtel in a season or 2. I've said it before and I'll say it again. #LFC— Scott (@RedsOrDead) June 30, 2015
Ilori has to be given a shot at first team action this year, quality ball playing solid CB #lfc— Mike Gaz (@underscoreMikeG) June 30, 2015

Tiago Ilori has more European experience than Brendan Rodgers and Sean O'Driscoll :)— Elton Well As Can Be (@keswickbro) June 30, 2015
Liked the look of Ilori. If he stays fit, I'd like to see him have a go.— Paul (@Liverpool_FOUR) June 30, 2015
