Spain's class proved too much for Mali as an Abel Ruiz brace inspired the U-17 European champion to a comprehensive 3-1 win in the semifinal of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World cup here on Wednesday.

But Mali goalkeeper Youssouf Koita pulled off a superb diving save.
Spain had a dominant first half as they took a two-goal lead.
