Man the current crop of U19s is really good. Jese-Alcacer-Deulofeu has the potential to be a great tridente up front. And with all due respect (not really) to la masia, the closest thin to Xavi in the lower categories for Spain is Oliver Torres. That kid is gonna be mega.

Suso also looked good in the youtube highlight video I was sent by my overreacting LFC friend. It's the interesting that the group ahead of them (last year's U21s) weren't very strong at forward and arguably, the forwards are the strongest section of this generation.

Enjoyed the game - Spain were great in attack.

Delofeu is very similar to Henry in his style - push and run fast. Really fast.

And Jese is very very talented. Good thing then that Madrid aren't going to give him a chance.

Henry could never dribble like Gerard at his best, their is very little push and run with him, he is more like robben

uefa 10 to watch of euro U19

Jean-Christophe Bahebeck (forward, France)
Can play both on the wing or up front. A product of Paris Saint-Germain FC's youth team, he showed intense bursts of speed that troubled opposition defences and was sorely missed in the semi-final loss to Spain when he limped off injured in the first half.

Bruma (forward, Portugal)
Another example of the fine work carried out by Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth academy, Bruma shone in an attack-minded side that picked up four points in Group A. The 17-year-old winger possesses fantastic close control and pace and his delivery into dangerous areas caused plenty of problems.

Gerard Deulofeu (forward, Spain)
A member of the 2011 squad when La Rojita won their fifth U19 crown, this time around he was his team's most creative outlet, constantly switching from one side of the pitch to the other. When the FC Barcelona winger gets it right few players at this level better him, as he showed when cleverly setting up Jesé Rodríguez for the final winner.

Eric Dier (defender, England)
Strong and agile, the Sporting Clube de Portugal centre-back was a calming presence as England progressed to the last four. Confident in possession, Dier liked to link defence with attack with his penetrative forward passing.

Giorgos Katidis (forward, Greece)
The Greek captain scored three times in the finals, two of which came in the deciding group encounter against Portugal which helped the 2007 runners-up into the last four. An invaluable presence in the semi-final against England when Greece were reduced to ten men.

Karl-Eerik Luigend (midfielder, Estonia)
Estonia's captain and left-sided attacker, Luigend's on-field intelligence and vision were personified in his team's only goal of the tournament when he coolly finished off a flowing move in the 4-1 defeat by Greece.

Nikola Ninković (midfielder, Serbia)
Scored Serbia's only goal, against England, hit the woodwork several times and was by far his side's most dangerous player. Has good positional sense, strength, technique and a keen eye for goal.

Paco Alcácer (forward, Spain)
Came off the bench to score two extra-time goals in last year's final and just as impressive as an impact player in Estonia. Replaced the suspended Jesé against the hosts and found the net before scoring, providing an assist and converting his spot kick in the semi-final shoot-out win against France.

Domagoj Pavičić (midfielder, Croatia)
With a style reminiscent of Luka Modrić, Pavičić was one of Croatia's most creative players and showed some great skills while scoring two goals. Excellent in the middle of the pitch; fast, smart and possesses a good shot.

Kostas Stafylidis (defender, Greece)
The PAOK FC left-back missed his team's opening defeat against Spain through suspension but proved his worth on his return. The attacking full-back caused havoc in opposing defences with his pinpoint crossing and devastating set pieces.

Deulofeu has improved though, it used to be that he would need one ball for himself and one for the other 21 players in the pitch but he is slowly becoming more unselfish. He's had a quite a few assists at the Euros.

Georgia are literally defending with all 11 players behind the ball. Silva's just hit the post and Spain are going to have to do more of that shooting from distance because otherwise there is just no space unless Georgia makes a mistake.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh Soldado misses a golden chance. Xavi finally finds a small space in the Georgian defence and Soldado can't beat the gk 1 v 1. From the clearance Iniesta tries from long distance again saved by the GK.

More of the same until the last minute winner from Soldado. Short corner to Pedro who found Cesc who crossed for Soldado.

Spain leading 1-0 through Sergio Ramos. Cesc has just had a penalty saved by Lloris after Kocielny tried to break Pedrito's knees. Alonso shoulda taken it!!! Grr

No Pepe Reina, could be the end (finally!) of the MC. Would have liked to see Isco in there but maybe the U21s have a fixture as well.

A shame that Michu didn't get a call but other than that it's a pretty decent squad. Will be interesting to see which GK gets the nod.

Defensas: César Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Álvaro Arbeloa (Real Madrid), Gerard Piqué (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Raúl Albiol (Real Madrid), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Ignacio Monreal (Arsenal).

Centrocampistas: Javi García (Manchester City), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Andrés Iniesta (Barcelona), David Silva (Manchester City), Santi Cazorla (Arsenal), Xavi Hernández (Barcelona), Cesc Fábregas (Barcelona), Isco (Málaga), Jesús Navas (Sevilla).

Delanteros: Pedro (Barcelona), Juan Mata (Chelsea), Álvaro Negredo (Barcelona), David Villa (Barcelona)

Three big absences: Casillas, who is still recovering from injury and Fernando Torres and Javi Martínez. A bit surprised that Javi García is preferred to Martínez. Still no place for Michu either. Glad that Isco is getting a call though, very much deserved.
