Germany captain Jasmin Sehan and Spain forward Andrea Sánchez have finished as joint top scorers in the UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship with four goals each in the inaugural eight-sided tournament.
Sehan flexed her muscles on matchday one by hitting a treble in Germany's 4-2 defeat of Scotland. There was no let up three days later as the 16-year-old made France's net billow after just four minutes. Sánchez – goalless in her opening two matches – then outshone Sehan by netting twice in Spain's thumping 4-0 win against the champions.
The Iberian striker sent a further two goals past England in the semi-finals to draw level with Sehan at the top of the scoring charts. Both players failed to make their mark on the final, but Sehan kept her cool in the shoot-out as Germany landed their fourth title.
Czech Republic forward Karolína Křivská was the season's overall leading scorer having registered nine times in six qualifying outings. Anna Miedema's haul of 18 for the Netherlands last time out is still the highest total for a single campaign.
