Germany have won the Maurice Burlaz Trophy – the trophy awarded to the national association which has achieved the best results in UEFA's men's youth competitions, and which is named after the Frenchman and former vice-chairman of the UEFA Youth Committee.

Youth results
The trophy has been awarded to European national associations since 1990, on the basis of results obtained in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship and UEFA European Under-19 Championship over the previous two seasons. Germany won the Under-19 tournament in 2007/08 and the Under-17 championship in 2008/09.

December presentation
Germany, with 16 points and winners for the first time since 1992, finished two points ahead of Spain – winners four times in succession – and France, with Italy and the Netherlands finishing on 13 points. The trophy will be presented at the next youth competition draw ceremony in Nyon in December.
