Spain have won the Under-19 European Championship after beating Russia 2-0 in the final on Sunday.

Real Madrid youngster Borja Mayoral made it 1-0 with a header in the first half, before Villarreal’s Matias Nahuel wrapped up the victory in the 78th minute.

It is the third time in five years that Spain have won the competition.
