Spain are under 17 European champions for the third time in their history after they beat England on penalties in the final! Santi Denia’s side had to come from behind twice, Hudson-Odoi firing England in to the lead midway through the first half, and Foden putting them back in front after Moha and Abel Ruíz had combined to set up Morey for the equalizer. All seemed lost though until the sixth and final minute of time added on, when substitute Nacho Díaz headed in a José Alonso corner to take the game to a penalty shoot out. Last year Spain lost to Portugal on penalties, but Brewster and Latibeaudiere put their kicks wide, and Abel Ruíz, Morey, Sergio Gómez and finally Chust all converted theirs to give their team an unexpected win.
