Under 17 World Cup

Spain 2 - Syria 1

Spain qualified for the knock out stage after a last minute victory over Syria in their second group match. The heavy rain made play difficult in the first half, but Juan Santiesteban's side went ahead soon after the restart when Fran Mérida's speculative effort caught keeper Madnia off guard. Syria equalised though with a Solaiman penalty after the ball hit Alex on the arm, and De Gea had to make an important save from Tamer soon afterwards. However with the game already in injury time, Bojan broke away to set up substitute Dani Aquino for the winning goal. (22.08.07)
