Spain are through to the final and Adrian, who scored a brace, reckons they were the better side against the team who obtained a shock lead in the first halfSpain Under-21 striker Adrian Lopez said his team deserved to beat Belarus and move on to the final of the European Under-21 Championships in Denmark.
Belarus found themselves in the lead for almost an hour after Andrey Varankov scored for them in the 38th minute, but Adrian Lopez equalised just two minutes before full time, taking the game to extra-time. There, Adrian scored a second and Jeffren Suarez sealed the deal to assure Spain of a place in the final.
After the match, the Deportivo striker told Quatro: "I think we had a great match, we suffered, but in the end football was fair and we grabbed a victory which will take us to the Olympic Games."
Adrian, who is the tournament's top scorer with five goals, added he does not know how he scored his second goal: "I tried to touch the ball so that it would go towards the goal, I did not even see it go inside the goal, but my team-mates came to me right after."
