Fornals aiming for U21 Euros glory

Pablo Fornals


Pablo Fornals and Spain U21 have a shot at UEFA European Championship glory when they face defending champions Germany in Sunday's final.

In a repeat of the 2017 showpiece, Spain will be looking to gain revenge in Udine and lift the trophy for a third time in five tournaments.

Fornals has been to the fore in Spain's run to the final, scoring in the group stage victories against Belgium and Poland, and laying on an assist in their semi-final romp against France.

Les Bleus had no answer to the Spanish firepower as they fell to a 4-1 defeat, and Spain look to be peaking at just the right time.

Having narrowly lost in their tournament opener against hosts Italy, they have come roaring back with three consecutive victories and just need one more for the crown.

The final kicks off at 7.45pm on Sunday and will be played at Udinese's Dacia Arena.
