England chances of reaching the Euro Under-21 Championship quarter-finals hang by a thread following a limp display and defeat by Portugal.
Having lost to Switzerland in their opening game, England were second best, failing to have a shot on target.
Dany Mota’s low, angled shot and Francisco Trincao’s penalty decided the game in the second half in Ljubljana.
England must now beat Croatia and hope Portugal defeat Switzerland to have any chance of progressing from Group D.
