    The final whistle is blown.
    Germany have won the UEFA European Under-21 Championship for the first time, defeating England 4-0 here in Malmo. Mesut Özil's goal just after half-time consolidated the first-half advantage given them by Gonzalo Castro, before Sandro Wagner's late double sealed a convincing win.

    Wagner (Germany) scores!
    Some of Germany's counterattacking football has been breathtaking and the fourth goal sums up their quality. Sandro Wagner cuts in from the left flank and curls a superb effort around Scott Loach. Germany had only scored four goals in four games before this evening, now they have four in the final.

    Wagner (Germany) scores!
    They won't look back now as Sandro Wagner makes it 3-0 through a wonderful counterattack. Mesut Özil again strides forwards and releases the striker who fires through the legs of Scott Loach. The scoreline may be harsh on England but there is no doubt that the better side have also been the more clinical and composed.

    Rodwell (in) - Muamba (out) (England)
  • 77
    Wagner (Germany) misses the target.
    Germany go even closer as Mesut Özil charges into the box and whips a cross to the back post. Sandro Wagner somehow fails to turn it in and Horst Hrubesch will be hoping his team do not go on to regret not putting this game to bed.
  • 76
    Schwaab (Germany) misses the target.

    Beck (Germany) makes a save.

    Özil (Germany) scores from a direct free-kick
    A huge blow for England at the start of the second half as Mesut Özil strikes a swerving free-kick from distance. Scott Loach misjudges it and can only get a hand to the ball before it trickles over the line into the centre of his goal. 2-0 and Germany have one hand on the trophy.
