Spain Can Go Far in the Eurocup

The selection of Luis de la Fuente has cleared up his doubts in a spectacular way. La Roja has beaten Croatia 3-0, something not easy to achieve, with a very complete match in which he knew how to do what he had to do at the right time.

Quiet Start and Masterstroke

Spain started calmly, sharing possession with Croatia at the start, and broke the match when Morata scored on his first opportunity. This goal opened the scoring and was followed by the goals of Fabián Ruiz, with a great goal, and Dani Carvajal in the first half. Within 45 minutes, Spain had hit the table and silenced the 50,000 Croatian supporters.

Impeccable Performance

Spain worked perfectly on their debut in Germany. Unai Simón was very successful in the clear arrivals from Croatia, and such positive things were seen as the reunion with Morata's goal, the fluid connection on the right wing between Carvajal and Lamine, and the feeling that any player can enter at any time without lowering the level of the team.

Lamine Yamal Dismantles Croatia

Gone is also the difficulty of marking that condemned us in Qatar. This performance gives reasons to trust this team that has decisively defeated the most difficult opponent in its group, reclaiming its place among the favorites of this European Championship.

For the memory there is the debut of the youngest footballer in history in a European Championship, Lamine Yamal. At the age of 16, his debut was far from a testimonial. The one of Rocafonda, the starter, was a torment for Croatia, who did not know how to contain the young Spaniard. In addition, he also became the youngest to give an assist. Two more records for your collection.

Upcoming Challenges

Ahead are Italy and Albania, matches that Spain will face with the tranquility of the cushion created today, with the first three points and three goals that make La Roja fly. An immense joy for the 12,000 Spanish fans displaced to the Olympic Games in Berlin, who chanted with olés the plays of La Roja and affectionately dismissed Morata when he had to be substituted for a stroke. Round debut for Spain.
