U 21 Germany v U 21 Spain: As it happened

The End

Germany is U21 European Champion! The decisive goal scored Mitchell Weiser in the 40th minute. In the second half, Spain produced pressure but without scoring any goal. Saul had one good effort, but the ball was cleared by Pollersbeck. In total, it is a well deserved victory for the Germans. From my part, congratulations for Germany!
