Spain’s run in this summer’s U20 World Cup has come to an end after a hard fought clash with Uruguay in Turkey.
The tournament favourites bowed out after Uruguay’s Felipe Avenatti scored the game’s only goal, heading home from close range in extra time.
City’s Denis Suarez started on the bench, but was introduced just before full-time as La Roja attempted to break the deadlock.
Despite adding extra impetus to Spain’s cause, Suarez didn’t manage to make the impact he did coming off the bench in Spain’s previous two games and Avenatti’s goal proved to be enough to eliminate Julen Lopetegui’s young side.
