AT the start of the UEFA Under-21 Championship I predicted Spain to beat England in the Final.

It looks like I'm going to be half right because pre-tournament favourites Spain remain on course having booked a final slot against Switzerland in Denmark on Saturday night.

I expected England to do well but Stuart Pearce's shot-shy side didn't win a game. His reward – a new deal!

Spain coasted through to the semi-finals where they were almost shocked by Belarus.

A massive shock looked on the cards until tournament top scorer Adrian's last-minute effort forced extra time.

Two more strikes sealed victory for the Spanish superkids but that game showed they’re not unstoppable.

And they’re sure to face a tougher task in the Final tonight against a Switzerland outfit who won their three group games without conceding a goal but also needed an extra 30 minutes to take care of the Czech Republic in the last four.

However, I’m keeping faith with Spain who are a best 2-7 with Coral to lift the trophy and 4-7 at Paddy Power to win in 90 minutes.

Switzerland, 5-1 at Ladbrokes over 90 minutes, have yet to concede a goal in the tournament so they can’t be written off and 0-0 pays 8-1 with William Hill.

Deportivo kid Adrian has banged in an impressive six goals so look at him at 4-1 with Skybet to net the opener. He is 6-5 with bet365 to score at any time.
