Spain is confirmed for the fifth consecutive time Under 17 Men WSE European Champion

After a goalless first half, everything came together in the second half, when Portugal scored two very close goals that exploded the match. It’s just the beginning because up to five minutes from the end the two teams face each other giving life to a match full of goals and spectacular actions. Pina and Lopes open the scoring, then Spain closes the gap with Andreu, the star of the Under 17 finals. Duarte brings him back to +2, but Spain with two goals from Roig in two minutes draws 3-3. But again Duarte with extreme speed brings Portugal ahead 4-3. In the 15th minute, Andreu equalized 4-4, then Andreu again in a direct shot with 2 minutes left to give his team the lead for the first time. Gabarro with an empty net makes it 6-4 and then Hidalgo with a direct shot makes it 7-4 for the Spanish victory, the fifth in a row, total numer 22 European Championship
Italy conquers the Bronze after leading the entire race but was tied by France at the end of the second half. A very heartfelt match like all the finals played in previous years: goals from Maggi and Margheriti were answered by goals from Gaucher and Garro. The match was decided by a shot by Cardella in the second minute of overtime. Fourth place for France.
In fifth place is Switzerland who remain unbeaten in regular time in this tournament: for them only a defeat on penalties against France. Excellent performance against England, which has never managed to worry about the result achieved by the Swiss. Lucas Pahud scores three more times, 10 times in 6 games. Schenk and Tonen complete the 5-2 while Semilore and Darbyshire scored for the English, classified with a good sixth place. In seventh place is Andorra, beating Germany in the second half. They were leading 3-1 but the Andorrans never stopped believing in it and managed to win 5-4 with Guillem Lopez’s decisive goal (two goals). Aviles (2) and Fernandez also scored while for Germany Halek (2 goals), Keil and Bocker.
