UEFA Under-19 Championships Final: France 2-1 Spain - Arsenal's Gilles Sunu on target as Chelsea's Gael Kakuta produces moment of magic to help French to glory

Hosts produce the goods against much-fancied Spanish...

By Gary Niblock

Euro Under 19 : France (Panoramic)
France produced a superb second half performance in front of their home crowd in Caen to beat Spain and lift their second UEFA Under-19 Championship title.

The Spanish, however, did take a deserved lead after 17 minutes. Oriel Romeu dispossessed Gael Kakuta before giving the ball to Dani Pacheco who played a superb through pass to Rodrigo Moreno.

The Real Madrid youngster got beyond Sebastien Faure and although the angle was against him, he took advantage of Abdoulaye Diallo's poor positioning and struck home with an accurate left-foot shot.

Spain almost doubled their lead when a clumsy Faure backpass put Diallo under pressure. The keeper miscontrolled the ball before Faure atoned for his error with a last-gasp challenge on Rodrigo after Sergio Canales had fluffed his lines.

And how vital that was to be as, four minutes into the second half, Gilles Sunu played a one-two with substitute Yannis Tafer and kept his cool to dink the ball over a helpless Alex Sanchez.

With six minutes to go, Kakuta showed just why Chelsea went to such lengths to sign him with a blistering run through the Spanish defence. Despite having his shot saved, he had the presence of mind to cross the rebound for Alexandre Lacazette to head home.
