Spain 4- 2 Italy Euro U21 Highlights

spainu21Spain retained their European Under-21 Championship title with a 4-2 victory over Italy in Jerusalem as Thiago Alcantara scored a first-half hat-trick.
In a mismatch that had echoes of the two countries’ meeting in the final of Euro 2012, Italy proved unable to cope with Spain’s far superior use of the ball and were a goal down inside six minutes when Thiago headed in from close range.
Though Ciro Immobile equalised within four minutes with a classy piece of control and a dinked finish over David De Gea, Spain pinned the Azzurrini back and dominated the remainder of the half, adding a second when Thiago finished from Koke’s floated cross and a third when he netted from the spot after Cristian Tello was fouled by Giulio Donati.
