Spain's under 17 side are virtually sure of a place in the Elite round after thrashing Malta 6-0 in their second group game. Barcelona's Sergio Samper started things off in the tenth minute, and his team mate Sandro added a hat-trick, including a penalty after he was brought down by Bonello, to take his tally to five in the tournament. Juan Jesús (Sevilla( and Alex (Sporting) got the other two goals. Spain's last match will be on Monday against Poland, who were not able to play Montenegro today due to a rainstorm.
