Portugal beat Spain 6-2 in Sunday's UEFA European Under-19 Futsal Championship final at Žatika Arena, Poreč.
In Group A, Portugal beat holders Spain 5-3 in their opener – a rematch of the 2022 final – and then overcame France 5-1 to ensure progress to a third straight semi. Hosts Croatia, who were denied in the final seconds against France in a 6-6 draw, then came back from three down to hold Spain 3-3. Spain's 5-2 victory over France on Wednesday was enough to take the defending champions through, as Croatia then lost 4-3 to Portugal.
Ukraine's 7-4 win against Finland ensured their progress, having lost 2-1 to Italy but beaten Slovenia 4-2. Italy also won 5-0 against Finland (who lost all three matches) but were beaten 4-2 by Slovenia, who go through in second behind Ukraine.
Portugal edged Slovenia 3-2 in the first semi-final on Friday, twice conceding equalisers before their late winner. It was also 3-2 as Spain defeated Ukraine to set up a rematch of the 2022 final with their neighbours (as well as their Matchday 1 meeting here).
In 2022, Spain won 6-2 (after extra time). This time Portugal won by that scoreline to end Spain's monopoly over the title in the third edition.
