What makes Spain's U-21s so good? Experience, talent and opportunity

They thought it might never happen again, but 10 days were all it took.

When Marco Asensio scored three goals against Macedonia in Spain's first game at the European Under-21 Championship, it was pretty much the best international hat trick anyone had ever seen - and pretty much the best they were ever likely to see. Or so they thought. Just three games later, Saul Niguez scored a hat trick that might have been better. As his third curled inside the post, past keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, Spain...

Spain's talented Under-21s expect nothing less than winning the Euros

Spain's Under-21s feel the pressure but thanks to the likes of Denis Suarez, they're ready.

KRAKOW, Poland -- With qualification for the European Under-21 Championship semifinals secured, Friday evening's game against Serbia gave Spain coach Albert Celades a chance to ring the changes.

"Jose Luis Gaya, Denis Suarez... Inaki Williams," were read out over the tannoy at the Bydgoszcz Stadium. This was Spain U21's B team: Gaya of Valencia fame, one of the most exciting young full-backs in world football, Suarez of Barcelona (enough said) and Williams, the new darling in Bilbao with Athletic...

Five stars of the U21 Euros so far: Asensio, Mawson, Neves, Zima, Meyer

The Under-21 European Championships is down to the final four with England taking on Germany and Italy against Spain. Here are five young players to have taken the tournament by storm already.

Marco Asensio -- Spain

Marco Asensio has had a quick rise with Real Madrid.

Really, this tournament hasn't told us anything we don't already know about Marco Asensio. Of course he was sensational in Spain's first game against Macedonia, scoring a hat trick and occasionally looking like he was playing opponents a few years younger than him.

"He is a player that...

GROUP A: England, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia

Must-see game: Sweden vs. England (June 18)

The first match of the group could set the tone as the holders face an England side with plenty of Premier League quality and experience. Sweden are without a few high-profile...

England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain: Who is best at breeding success?

England have won their first major trophy since 1966, after Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Venezuela.

England's victory in the Under-20 World Cup final on Sunday was their first competitive triumph since 1966, and brings hope that the national team finally has a group of young stars that can replicate that success at senior level.

There is a long way to go before England gains parity with Europe's other major football nations in terms of trophies won -- at any level. France, Germany, Italy and Spain have all shown at varying times how success at youth level can be transferred into European Championship...

European giants Spain, Germany good bets in midweek friendlies

On home soil, Spain are a good bet to take down Colombia in midweek.

The summer internationals continue this week with most of the major European players involved in friendly action ahead of the next round of World Cup qualifying matches. 

On Wednesday, Spain play host to Colombia in a game that could feature a few goals. To be fair, there is not much history between the teams, with a friendly in 1981 ending 1-1 and their last encounter in 2011 finishing 1-0 to Spain, who were arguably the best side in the world at the time. That may no longer be the case,...
