Spain's under 19 side are already sure of a place in the semi-finals after a 2-1 win over Portugal in their second group match. Liverpool's Dani Pacheco picked up a pass from Rodri to put Luis Milla's side ahead early on, and Thiago, Canales and Rodri all had chances to increase the lead later in the first half. Portugal had only troubled Alex once with a free kick close to half time from his namesake, but after the break Pinto and Roderick came close before Pinto equalised with twelve minutes to go. Pacheco won it though with a second individualist goal two minutes from the end to give Spain maximum points from their first two games. (21.07.10)
