URUGUAY 1 - SPAIN 0 | QUARTER FINAL FIFA U-20 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RESULT

The Spanish U-20 National Football Team was knocked out by Uruguay 1 - 0 in extra-time in the quarter-final of the FIFA U-20 World Championship being held in Turkey. The "knock-out" blow came in the 102 th min from a free-kick that found the head of giant Uruguayan Avanatti who put his team ahead & scored the goal that was to be the winner.

In fact this mentioned fixed play was the difference that tipped the match between two rugged & even teams. Spain also paid the price for not taking & converting their numerous goal opportunities. The "Iron Law of Football" was again evident, if you miss your chances you will lose. 

Spain now fly off home but give an impressive image of future talents. The Atletico de Madrid midfielder Oliver Torres ( in photo ) has tantalized everyone & some are going as far as labelling the "kid" the "New Xavi Hernandez". Whether or not it is premature to put so much pressure on the "boys shoulders" we are in for some wonderful Football from Torres if he is looked after at his Club & by Spanish Football.

Goalkeeper Sotres also played well & saved Spain in the end of normal time with a hand that stopped a goal but in the process fractured his nose against the post. The player illustrated the "Spanish U-20 spirit" but everyone fell short in the end to a more accurate Uruguayan team.

Congratulations to Uruguay & I wish them luck for the rest of the tournament.

There will be more Spanish Football Internationals in coming days with the UEFA U-19 European Championships. Here to people expect to see big things from the Spanish U-19 squad.
