Spain cruised in to the under 19 European Championship final with a crushing 5-0 victory over Austria. Although the first chance fell to the Central Europeans, Walch shooting wide early on, Ginés Meléndez's side were soon in control, and Kuru did well to keep out a shot from Mata and a Javi García free kick. Ten minutes before half time though Piqué and Mata combined to set up Jeffrén for the opening goal, and before the break Javi García had added a second with a free kick which deflected in off the keeper after hitting the bar.

Piqué put a good chance over the bar early in the second half, but the Austrians caused a few problems for Adán themselves before Mata put the game out of their reach after picking up a return pass from his Real Madrid team mate Bueno. Spain added two more after that, Javi García beating the offside trap to get his second of the night and Bueno wrapping things up two minutes from the end after good work again by Mata. Their opponents in the final will be Scotland, who surprisingly won 1-0 against the Czech Republic in the other semi-final, and having already beaten them 4-0 at the group stage the youngsters must now be favourites for the title.
