Under 17 European championship

Spain became the first country to win the European under 17 championships twice in a row after a convincing 4-0 win over France. Juan Santiesteban's side dominated right from the start, Atlético Madrid's Keko opening the scoring from Thiago's cross on the half hour mark and setting up Sergi Mut for the second just a few minutes in to the second half. Thiago made it three from the penalty spot after Sielva was fouled by Fauré, and Manu headed the fourth from Keko's cross a few minutes later. (16.05.08)

Defending champions Spain are into the final once again after a 2-1 win over Holland. Juan Santiesteban's side were against the ropes in the first half, Wesley Sneijder's younger brother Rodney heading the Dutch team in to the lead. Pulido equalised however soon after the restart to take the game into extra time, and substitute Angel Martínez fired home the winner with eight minutes to go. Spain will play France in the final next Friday. (13.05.08)

Spain topped their group after beating Ireland 3-1 in their last mini-league match. Hourihane put the Irish side ahead on the quarter hour mark, but half time substitute Rubén Rochina scored twice after the break and Keko wrapped things up late on. The youngsters play Holland in the semi-finals on Tuesday. (10.05.08)
