Sweden win title for first time
 Women's Football News 15 Jul 2012
 
Sweden won the UEFA Under-19 Championships for the first time after an extra time goal gave them a 1-0 victory over Spain in the Final in Antalya. 
 
The two teams had met a week earlier in the group stages and battled out a goalless draw and this meeting proved to be just as close.
 
Sweden started the game brightly but Spain began to look the more threatening going forward and Ivana Andres had a header cleared off the line, whilst Raquel Pinel also went close.
 
Spain assumed control of matters midway through the second half and it took a good save from Jessica Hoglander to keep her side on level terms, tipping a Virginia Torrecilla header around the post. Shortly afterwards, Alexia Putellas went even closer as she hit the woodwork via a free kick but Sweden held on under the increasing pressure to take the game into extra time.
 
The pattern of the game continued with Spain on the front foot but three minutes into the second period, they were hit by a sucker punch. Elin Rubensson broke down the left and sent in a cross which was not held by Dolores Gallardo and Malin Diaz was on hand to tuck the ball into the empty net.
 
There was no coming back for Spain and Sweden, who were runners-up to England in 2009, saw the game out to put their name on the trophy for the first time.
