Spain had to come back to equalize in extra-time to force the penalty shoot-out. Brazil played an excellent match, quick, with initiative & chances. The merit of the Spanish youngsters was that they never gave in , kept to their playing style & equalized Brazil in determination. But there can only be one winner & Brazil were far more accurate & calm in the penalty shoot-out. The latter now meet Mexico in the semi-finals
