Spain beaten in Under-19’s final (2-1)

FC Barcelona's rising stars just missed out on glory at the European Under-19 Championships as Spain were beaten by France in the final on Saturday in Caen.

The seven players in the Spanish squad were hoping to repeat the triumph that La Roja enjoyed in South Africa in the World Cup, but fell at the last hurdle after the team let an early lead go.

Four starters

Four Barça players began the final against France and Spain made a great start when Daniel Pacheco supplied Rodrigo to score in the 18th minute before going on to control the opening half.

The Spain keeper made a good save in the 80th minute from Tafer again, but he was helpless with five minutes left when Gael Kakuta ran directly and his shot was palmed into the path of substitute Alexandre Lacazette to roll in the winner.

France: Diallo, Nego, Mavinga, Faure, Kakuta, Fofana, Sunu (Lacazette 69’), Griezmann (Tafer 46’), Coquelin, Timothée Kolodziejczak, Bakambu.

Spain: Àlex, Montoya, Planas, Bartra, Pulido (Ezequiel Calvente 87’), Romeu, Keko (Muniain 63’), Thiago, Rodrigo (Rochina 73’), Canales, Pacheco.

Goals: 0-1, Rodrigo (17’); 1-1, Sunu (48’); 2-1, Lacazette (85’).
