Spain now holds all the football silverware it can after beating Switzerland 2-0 in the final to claim the European Under-21 championship in Denmark.

Ander Herrera and Thiago Alcantara scored the goals for Spain, who are also the World Cup holders and European champions.

It's their third continental Under-21 title and came thanks to a first-half header from Herrera and an audacious free kick from Alcantara in the 81st minute.
