Peterborough United midfielder Leo Da Silva Lopes was an unused substitute as Portugal lost 3-0 to England in an Under 20 international in Manchester last night (March 27).
The match was played at Manchester City’s Academy stadium. Da Silva Lopes made his international debut as a substitute in a 1-0 defeat at home to Germany last week.
Da Silva Lopes came to England from Lisbon aged 12 and was spotted by Posh playing for Powerleague in the Peterborough & District Junior Alliance League. He still lives in Bretton with close family.
Da Silva Lopes will return to the Posh squad for the big League One game at Rotherham on Good Friday.
