Under 21 European qualifier

Sweden 2 - Spain 0

Spain's under 21 side have a difficult task ahead of them after falling to a 2-0 defeat in the first leg of their Euro 2004 qualifier in Sweden. The youngsters fell behind when Farnerud beat Víctor Valdés after the break, but had a chance to draw level when they were awarded a penalty for a foul on Rubén Castro. However Villa put his kick over the bar, and with the game in injury time Kallström scored a second goal for the Scandinavians. The second leg takes place in Extremadura next Wednesday, with the winners going into next spring's European championships. (15.11.03)
