Highlights: Spain U21 2-1 Germany U21

By on 30th June 2019

Spain have won the European Championship for the first time in six years following their 2-1 victory over Germany at the Dacia Arena in Udine, Italy on Sunday evening.

In what was a rematch of the final from two years ago, Spain came out on top this time thanks to strikes from Fabian Ruiz and Dani Olmo.

Ruiz gave the Spaniards the lead after only seven minutes with a 25-yard strike after the German defence backed away. Spain dominated the possession and territory in the opening 20 minutes before Germany settled, but this was the only shot on target from either nation in the first half.

Stefan Kuntz’s side tried taking the game to Spain in the second half but were undone on the counter attack midway through the half when Dani Olmo cheekily rebounded home after Alexander Nubel had spilled Fabian Ruiz’s long-range effort.

Germany did score a consolation of their own.¬†Nadiem Amiri’s 25-yard effort took a deflection off Jesus Vallejo to loop over goalkeeper¬†Antonio Sivera with two minutes remaining. But Spain held on to win the tournament for a joint-record fifth time, along with Italy.
