Germany to face Portugal in Euro U21 final
Portugal beat defending champions Spain with a late strike to set up a European Under-21 Championship final against Germany on Sunday.
Portugal’s winning goal with 10 minutes left was a fortuitous one as Fabio Vieira’s low cross deflected off Jorge Cuenca and looped into the net.

The Portuguese, who had Wolves’ Vitinha and Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot in their starting line-up, are aiming to win the competition for the first time having been beaten finalists in 1994 and 2015.
Spain, meanwhile, missed the opportunity to lift the trophy for a record sixth time, staying level with Italy on five victories.
