Norway's hopes of Euro Under-21 glory were ended by Spain at the semi-final stage.

Rovers forward Josh King started for Tor Ole Skullerud's side, but was withdrawn at the break, as Spain eased into Tuesday's final against Italy with a comfortable 3-0 win.

 

In another dominant display from the tournament favourites, Spain opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time through Rodrigo Moreno.

 

The holders had to wait until the 87th minute for their second, Isco getting the goal, before leading scorer Alvaro Morata sealed Spain's place in the Jerusalem showpiece deep into added time.
