Spain and Turkey complete finals lineup

Spain and Turkey completed the finals lineup on Sunday, joining Belgium, Greece, the Czech Republic, the Republic of Ireland, Serbia and the hosts in Romania next month.

Spain and Turkey topped their respective elite round groups on Sunday to complete the lineup for the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Romania.

Serbia were the first team to book their finals berth alongside hosts Romania when they wrapped up Group 6 last month. They were soon joined by Greece, who beat France in their final fixture to oust the holders, before Belgium, the Czech Republic and the Republic of Ireland secured their spots in the tournament.

Spain followed suit thanks to a 1-1 draw against England on Sunday, when Turkey defeated Germany 1-0 to leapfrog their opponents and finish at the Group 7 summit. The draw for the finals, which begin on 20 July and culminate on 1 August, takes place at the headquarters of the Romanian Football Federation (FRF) on Wednesday at 17.30 local time (16.30CET).
