Under 17 European qualifiers

Spain's under 17 side will be sure of a place in next summer's European finals if they can beat Italy in their last Elite Group qualifying match next Monday. Juan Santiesteban's side drew 2-2 with hosts Romania in their opening match, Barcelona's Rochina and Real Sociedad's Gazta getting the goals to save a point after the locals had gone two up. And two days later, a last minute strike from Racing Santander's Canales was enough to give them a 1-0 win over the other group side, Austria. (28.03.08)
