Fornals bags dramatic late winner for Spain U21

Pablo Fornals in action for Spain


West Ham United's new signing Pablo Fornals kept Spain's chances at the UEFA U21 Championships alive with a dramatic late winner against Belgium on Wednesday night.

Fornals, who joined the Hammers from Villarreal last week, came off the bench at the break with Belgium having pegged his team back at 1-1.

Spain were defeated 3-1 by Italy in their opening fixture on Sunday, so knew they needed all three points in Reggio Emilia to give themselves a shot at making the semi-finals.

And Fornal delivered in style in the final minute, striding forward before rifling home a shot from just outside the area.

Spain are now third in Group A, three points behind leaders Poland and level with Italy, after they were defeated by the table-toppers later on Wednesday.

Fornals and Spain close the group stage by facing Poland on Saturday.
