|Third Place Playoff|
Note: (aet): After Extra Time (p) Norway and Portugal won their respective games on penalties.
The 1992 Under 18 European Championship Finals were held in Germany, with a straight knockout format used for the eight qualified teams.
Turkey won the tournament beating Hungary 3-0 in the Quarter-Finals, Norway 2-1 in the Semi-Final, and Portugal 2-1 after extra time, in the Final. Turkey’s Under 18s had played 28 matches over the previous 30 months, winning 13, drawing 8 and losing 9.
It vindicated the youth policies of manager Serpil Hamdi Tuzun, who combined work at the National Level with his job on the coaching staff of Besiktas under Scot Gordon Milne. Mustafa of Galatasaray scored four of the goals in the Finals, but the winner in the final came from substitute Takan, who played for Third Division Club, Karagumruk.
