Fer denies Germans

Netherlands substitute Leroy Fer got a last-gasp goal to beat Germany while Spain edged Russia with a header from debutant Alvaro Morata at

the Euro Under-21 championship yesterday.

The Dutch beat rivals Germany 3-2 with Fer's 90th minute header while holders Spain dominated Russia but had to wait until eight minutes from time for Morata to secure a 1-0 win.

Morata almost added a second goal in the 89th minute but was denied by the post.
