Spain and France open finals

UEFA has revealed the schedule for the UEFA European Under-17 Championship finals with France facing fellow former winners Spain in one of the opening games on 18 May.

France and Spain, who have twice met in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship final, will kick off the 2010 competition in Liechtenstein on 18 May.

Other than the final, all games will be played as part of double-headers at the two venues: the Rheinpark stadium in Vaduz and the Sportpark Eschen-Mauren. Eurosport, UEFA's television partner for the youth competitions, will broadcast all nine matches at the Rheinpark in Vaduz, including the final, both semi-finals, and France and Spain's Group A curtain-raiser from 17.30CET on 18 May.

The other game in the pool is scheduled to take place at the same time in Eschen-Mauren, between two other former champions, Portugal and Switzerland. The two Group B matches are three hours later, England facing the Czech Republic in Vaduz and Greece playing Turkey in Eschen-Mauren. Group games continue on 21 and 24 May, with the top two from each pool progressing to the semi-finals three days later. The tournament concludes at 17.30CET on Sunday 30 May.
