JERUSALEM -- Thiago Alcantara scored a first-half hat trick as Spain turned on the style to beat Italy 4-2 on Tuesday and win the European Under-21 championship for a second consecutive time. Patrick Mahomes Chiefs Jersey . Italy started as the brighter side at Jerusalems Teddy Stadium but Spain, captained by Thiago, soon gained control and took the lead after just six minutes. Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata stormed past the Italy defenders down the left and Thiago headed home from close range. Italy hit back four minutes later when Ciro Immobile chipped over flailing Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea. But 15 minutes before the interval, Thiago restored Spains lead after chesting down a cross by Koke. The Barcelona midfielder brought up his hat trick in the 38th minute, this time from the penalty spot after Giulio Donati brought down Christian Tello in the box. Italy appeared to have regained its composure after the break and Lorenzo Insigne created a pair of opportunities in the first five minutes, including an Alessandro Florenzi half volley which flew just over the crossbar. At the other end, Isco went close for Spain, ending a good move with a close range effort which zipped past the post. Italy coach Devis Mangia tried to spice things up by bringing on two players who had scored in previous games -- Riccardo Saponara and Manolo Gabbiadini. But Isco put the result beyond doubt in the 66th minute with another penalty after Vasco Regini brought down Martin Montoya. Fabio Borini pulled one back for Italy in the 80th minute, but there was no real chance of turning the match around. Len Dawson Youth Jersey .

On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators.Cambridge beat Oxford to win the 162nd edition of the University Boat Race and end their rivals recent dominance of the contest. The victory was their first in four years, and came after a run of six wins from eight for Oxford, whose women had won the womens edition earlier on Sunday afternoon.Favourites Cambridge had won the toss, and chose to start on the Surrey station, the same south side of Londons river Thames as Oxfords women. In rough conditions on the Tideway course, the teams began competitively but with the more experienced Cambridge crew slightly edging ahead while rowing more tidily.Much of the reason they were favoured came in the fact they were 11.8kg heavier overall, 1.5cm taller per man, and had added Great Britain oarsman Lance Tredell to their team. Oxfords women win Cambridge well beaten after almost sinking Approaching the first bend they were were building a promising lead, but at a time when they would have hoped to extend that - approaching the second, by Hammersmith bridge - Oxford impressed by remaining more than in contention just behind them. Cambridge plough through choppy conditions on the Thames to win the Boat Race The second was where the water, owing to strong wind, was at its choppiest, and where Cambridges women were at risk of sinking, but Cambridge built on their advantage in the unfavourable conditions and, by the time they reached the Chiswick steps, were set up for victory.

Thereafter, both teams - perhaps reacting to the struggles earlier witnessed in the womens race - headed for the Middlesex bank where the water was at its kindest, and as they did, Cambridge retained their lead which had built to two-and-a-half-lengths. Cambridge celebrate their first Boat Race win since 2012 Heading into the final straight having already overcome the biggest challenges, the light blues remained relaxed to end any unlikely hope Oxford had of recovering.Their convincing victory was eventually secured in a time of 18 minutes and 38 seconds, and by two-and-a-half lengths.
