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, Castillion firing a shot just wide before Wesley Sneijder's younger brother Rodney headed the Dutch team in to the lead from Cabral's cross.

Atlético's Pulido equalised however soon after the restart, controlling Thiago's speculative punt on his chest before sweeping a shot in off the bar. That took the game into extra time, and Espanyol substitute Angel Martínez fired home the winner with eight minutes to go. Spain will play France in the final next Friday, a repeat of their group match which ended 3-3.
