Youth international fixtures
As well as the fixtures of the full international side, Spain's youth teams have been in action recently in various competitions.
An under 20 side will be taking place in next July's Youth World Cup in Canada after winning the under 19 European Championship last summer, and they won a warm up game in Alcázar de San Juan last week against the Czech Republic 3-1, with goals from Real Madrid's Mata, Albacete's César and Sevilla's Diego Capel in the second half.
Spain's current under 19 side played a double header against Portugal in the middle of March in preparation for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers in Norway in a few weeks' time. Ginés Meléndez's side lost their first match 1-0, Rui Pedro scoring for the hosts in the second half. But they won the second game by the same scoreline thanks to a late goal by Liverpool defender Miki Roqué.
The under 17 squad hosted their qualifying group matches this week, and they comfortably topped their table with three wins out of three. Barcelona's Bojan Krkic got the goal as they beat Switzerland 1-0 in the opening game, and Arsenal's Fran Merida, Atlético Madrid's Pichu and Athletic Bilbao's Isma scored as they came from behind to win 3-1 against Sweden. After that they only needed to draw against Poland, but a header from Pichu gave them a 1-0 result, ensuring their place in the finals which will take place in Belgium in May. (31.03.07)
