France pulled off a major shock by coming from behind to beat favourites Spain 2-1 in the final of the Under-19 European Championship in Caen last night.

Spain, who knocked out England in the semi-finals, had dominated the first half but only had Rodrigo's 18th-minute goal to show for it. Soon after the interval Sergio Canales missed a great chance to double their advantage and moments later Arsenal's Gilles Sunu chipped an equaliser.

The game appeared set for extra-time but with five minutes to go Alexandre Lacazette headed France's winner after being set up by Chelsea winger Gaël Kakuta's superb run.
