Mauricio Ballesteros Zamora, 35, had been on board a bus with a large group of fellow fans, heading to the reunited band's gig at the Foro Sol on Wednesday (20Apr16), when the vehicle flipped on the Mexico-Queretaro highway.

"Our thoughts and hearts are with the family of Mauricio Ballesteros Zamora. We are so very sorry for your loss. "We hope for a speedy recovery to the 29 other injured fans. God speed." The show was GNR's second at the Foro Sol venue, and the latest on their classic line-up reunion tour after headlining the Coachella festival in California last Saturday (16Apr16). They will return to Coachella this weekend (23Apr16), before embarking on a full North American trek in late June (16), after Axl, who is currently sporting a broken foot, joins AC/DC to fill in for ailing Brian Johnson on their ongoing Rock Or Bust world tour.

Joel Latibeaudiere then blazed his penalty over the crossbar before Sergio Gomez and Victor Chust converted to deny the Young Lions a historic third tournament win.

England 's Under- 17 s suffered penalty heartbreak in Croatia, as Spain became European Under-17 champions for a record third time. But in the final seconds, Bursik couldn't keep out Diaz's header, taking the match to penalties, using the ABBA system currently being trialled.

Correy-Lee Bogan had equalized for Harps from the penalty spot with 4 minutes to go after UCD had lead, but that wasn’t the final drama as the students once more inflicted heartbreak on the Harps.

Phil Foden's stunning second-half strike had restored England's lead after Callum Hudson-Odoi's opener had been cancelled out by Spain defender Morey before the interval.

The Young Lions, who had won the tournament in 2010 and 2014 and beat Turkey 2-1 in their semi-final on Tuesday, were first to get their noses in front when Hudson-Odoi fired them into an 18th-minute lead courtesy of a deflection.

Jadon Sancho fed the Chelsea striker just outside the penalty area and after cutting inside, his right-footed shot hit Hugo Guillamon and curled inside goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez's far post.

Spain chased an immediate riposte and went close through Ferran Torres and Abel Ruiz, before cutting England apart for a deserved equaliser.

Moha's brilliant through ball picked out Abel Ruiz and after his cut back caught England square footed, Barcelona team-mate Morey smashed the ball into the roof of the net.

Spain were handing England their sternest test in the tournament, but a brilliant strike from midfielder Foden put the Young Lions back in front.

Foden took aim 25 yards from goal on the right of the penalty area and rifled a left-footed shot past Fernandez in the 58th minute.

But with the last touch of the game deep in stoppage time, Nacho Diaz headed home Jose Alonso's corner and Spain followed up their semi-final defeat of Germany by holding their nerve in another penalty shootout.
