England have reached their first U21 Euros final since 2009 in style, dispatching the Czech Republic, Israel (twice), holders Germany, and Portugal without conceding a goal and scoring 10 of their own. Lee Carsley’s Young Lions have been the standout team of the tournament so far and need only repeat what they’ve already done in Georgia to lift this trophy for a third time — and first since 1984.

However, in Spain, they’re facing U21 Euros experts. La Rojita have won this tournament a record five times — last in 2019 — while this is their ninth final. Italy are the next closest contender with five wins but only seven finals. Spain have had to work a little harder to get here than England, drawing to Ukraine in their final group match and conceding to both Switzerland (2-1) and, once again, the Ukrainians (5-1) in the knockouts after keeping clean sheets in their opening two games against Romania (3-1) and Croatia (1-0).

England are the team to beat, while Spain are the historic giants of this tournament, so whatever happens, you can expect a close and hotly contested affair at the Batumi Stadium.
