[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.

Spain Roster:
1-Daniel Sotres (Racing Santander), 13-Adrian Ortola (Villarreal), 21-Ruben Yanez (Real Madrid)
DEFENDERS (7): 2-Javier Manquillo (Atletico Madrid), 3-Jose Luis Gaya (Valencia), 4-Derik (Real Madrid), 5-Israel Puerto (Sevilla), 6-Jose Campana (Sevilla), 12-Diego Llorente (Real Madrid), 20-Jonatan Otto (Celta Vigo)
MIDFIELDERS (5): 8-Suso (Liverpool), 14-Ager Aketxe (Athletic Club Bilbao), 15-Saul (Atletico Madrid), 16-Oliver (Atletico Madrid), 18-Denis Suarez (Manchester City)
FORWARDS (6): 7-Ruben (Levante), 9-Paco Alcacer (Getafe), 10-Jese (Real Madrid), 11-Juan Bernat (Valencia), 17-Gerard Deulofeu (FC Barcelona), 19-Jairo (Racing Santander)
