Bellerin’s Spain lose in Euro Under-21 final

Hector Bellerin in action against Germany

Hector Bellerin’s Spain were back in European Under-21 Championship action on Friday night as they faced Germany in the tournament final.

Scroll down to find out how our right back got on:

Bellerin played the full 90 minutes but was unable to help Spain lift a fifth tournament title, as La Furia slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Germany. After a slow start, Bellerin was first to threaten, but he headed Daniel Ceballos’ deep cross inches wide of the far post.

The defender had been given a tough test by former Gunner Serge Gnabry, and it was not long before Germany made their dominance count. This time attacking down Spain’s left-hand side, Jeremy Toljan found Mitchell Weiser in the box and the Hertha Berlin forward sent a looping header over Kepa Arrizabalaga to give Germany a half-time lead.

Spain attacked with more urgency after the break, with Bellerin providing plenty of width and pace on their right flank, but Germany stood firm to secure a second European Under-21 Championship title in eight years.
