BOLOGNA, Italy (AP) — Defending champion Germany will again meet Spain in the Under-21 European Championship final after both won their semifinals on Thursday.
Luca Waldschmidt and Nadiem Amiri scored late as Germany came from behind to beat Romania 4-2, while Spain routed France 4-1.
Spain lost 1-0 to Germany in the 2017 final and will now have its chance for revenge in Udine on June 30.
In the first semifinal, in Bologna, Amiri gave Germany the lead in the 21st minute after racing from inside his own half but George Puscas leveled from the spot following a foul by Timo Baumgartl on Ianis Hagi.
And Romania, which was making only its second appearance in the competition, took the lead on the stroke of halftime when Puscas headed in.
