Spain Win U19 Euros.


Perhaps the rest of the world should stick to some other sports for a few years after Spain won the Under 19 European Championship in Estonia last night.

The little Los Furios beat Greece 1-0 in the final to retain the trophy they won last season.

Spain are now the European under 19, under 21 and double senior European champions, as well as the reigning world champions too.

Tournament top scorer Jese Rodriguez grabbed his fifth goal to give Spain the title.

The 19-year-old Real Madrid striker is sure to be a handful for La Liga defences for many seasons to come.

To be expected, Barcelona also had a star performer in the victorious squad, with 18-year-old forward Gerard Deolofeu arguably the pick of the players on show.

It will be interesting to see if the left-sided La Masia graduate, who currently plays for Barca B, will crack the nod in Tito Vilanova’s first-team squad this season, after his glittering displays for the under 19s.

Another top talent to look out for from yet another batch of talented Spaniards is 18-year-old playmaker Suso.

He was brought to Premier League club Liverpool by Rafa Benitez as a 16-year-old, and is surely knocking on the door for a place in Brendan Rodgers’ plans this season.

With a cultured left foot, time on the ball and a spellbinding breadth of passing, the Reds believe they have their new Xabi Alonso in Suso, who along with his under 19 team-mates could become a familiar face very soon By Sbue,

    • MS, Do you remember that in 1998, France won the FIFA World Cup against Brazil, and went on to sweep all age-group tournaments. Has it got anything to do with the contageousness of momentum?
