Holland retained the European Under-17 Championship title with a 4-2 victory over Italy in Tallaght.

Holland went 3-0 up in the first half following goals from Sontje Hansen in the 20th minute, Naoufal Bannis in the 37th and Chelsea's Ian Maatsen just before the interval.

Lorenzo Colombo reduced the deficit 11 minutes into the second half before Naci Unuvar made it 4-1 with 20 minutes of normal time remaining. Colombo subsequently added his second goal late on.

The game was a rematch of last year's final as Holland won the competition for a fourth time.
