Spain's under 17 side beat Ukraine 3-1 in their second group match to virtually qualify for the semi-finals. Camacho headed the youngsters into the lead from Ximo's free kick in the first half, and Falqué and Aquino added two more later on before Shevchuk's injury time consolation. (04.05.07)
Spain's under 17 side kicked off the European finals with a 2-0 victory over France.

Some of Spain's other youth sides have been in action in recent days as well. The under 21 team and the under 20 team played each other in a training match which served as a warm up for their forthcoming commitments. The under 21s will be starting next season's European qualifying matches next month, and the under 20s will be taking part in the Youth World Cup in Canada this summer.
Elsewhere the under 16 side played a friendly against England in the new Wembley stadium, a match which served to test the facilities once more prior to it's official inauguration. (02.05.07)
