1-0. 36. Dani Parejo. Curled wide free kick inside keeper's near post.

Spain's under 19 side followed in the footsteps of their under 17 counterparts, taking this year's European title after beating Greece in the final. With midfielders Javi Martínez and Montoro suspended, Juan Santiesteban gave a first start to Real Madrid's Dani Parejo, and brought Sevilla full back Víctor Díaz up to a holding role in midfield. The early chances fell to their opponents though, with Mitroglou shooting over and Sergio Asenjo saving from Ninnis.

Spain only had a couple of half efforts from Azpilicueta and Aarón to their name in the opening half hour, but ten minutes before the break Parejo scored what was to prove the only goal of the game, curling a wide free kick inside the near post with keeper Stratilatis way out of position.

Asenjo had to keep out Moniakis and Siovas either side of half time, and the Valladolid keeper also saved from Papadopoulos later on. But Spain's defence have only let in one goal all tournament, and they held fast after that to give their side their fourth European cup in the six times that this event has taken place.
