Under 17 international

Spain 1 - Russia 1

Spain's under 17 side failed to qualify tonight for the European finals after drawing 1-1 with Russia, and everything will now be decided in the last round of matches on Wednesday. Juan Santiesteban's side took the lead just after the quarter hour mark when Gerard picked up a pass from Pepe to beat the Russian keeper, but the East Europeans came back with a goal from Gavriuk on the stroke of half time. Substitute Javi García hit the woodwork after the break, but Adán had to save from Samsonov near the end to preserve the result. (29.03.04)
