1-0: Spain will play in the final of the U-19 European Championship after beating Sweden


With a fantastic header from Mirari Uria in the second half, the Spanish under-19 team qualified for the European category final after beating Sweden (1-0), in a duel that dominated from the start until after which to choose his fourth continental title.

The Real Sociedad player scored his second goal of the tournament played in the Czech Republic. Time stopped at Opava’s Mestsky Fotbalovy when Uria climbed inside the Scandinavian team’s box to pick up Ornella Vignola’s cross from the left wing.

His stubbornness, not to be appealed, is worth a ticket to Spain’s final play next Sunday against winners Norway-France. He did justice to the almost perfect encounter of the girls led by Pedro López, who only lowered their arms at the last stretch of the duel, when Sweden, desperate to equalize, had a timid attempt at reaction that did not bear fruit. .

Partly thanks also to Meritxell Font, who turned down one of the few Swedish opportunities in Lisa Björk’s boots. The Barcelona goalkeeper, in the last desperate stretch from his rivals, released a saving hand in the last stretch of the duel that prevented an extension that would have been unfair.

And before that, Spain, from the first minute of the duel, came out holding a knife between its teeth ready to go to Sweden to reach the ninth final in history. With Júlia Bartel and Fiamma Ianuzzi highly inspired by the rules of the game, Spain danced alongside their rivals, unstoppable by a hurricane in which they emerged unscathed due to lack of goal.

In the first 45 minutes, Pedro López’s team accumulated plenty of chances: Bartel started the carousel with a shot from outside the area; Fiamma followed with a slightly widened header; Laborde forced Barmack to release a magical hand with a cross left-footed shot; Uriah tried this with another header that found no purpose; and finally, Bartel and Fiamma, from afar, also touched the goal.

Sweden came out alive from the Spanish siege in the early part. But, in the second, they were again overtaken by Spain who, finally, after 52 minutes, were able to celebrate a goal as desired as it should have been. Uriah manages to break down the Scandinavian wall, he does justice and then Font erases Sweden’s anxiety, which eventually kneels down in front of a header worth the final.
