[SPAIN UNDER-20 MEN] Spanish soccer is on a roll. Spain won Euro 2008 and Euro 2012, the 2010 World Cup and just this week
won the 2013 Under-21 Euro. It won the 2012 UEFA Under-19 Championship in July and the same group hopes to add to it the Under-20 World Cup title for the second time. Spain opens play Friday against
the USA in Istanbul.
Spain garnered its ninth UEFA crown after beating Greece, 1-0, on a goal by Real Madrid Castilla's Jese, the tournament's
scoring lead with five goals.
Spain won the 1999 U-20 title and finished second to Brazil in 1985 and 2003. Neither Brazil nor Argentina in Turkey,
so Spain enters the tournament as the favorite.
