spain lost to Swiss in The Romareda and is bound to win Portugal in Braga to play the final phase of the League of Nations. The combined of Luis Enrique He left a very poor image in the first half, where he was not even able to shoot on goal. In the second half, Asensio he stuck out his left hand to assist Jordi Alba, which put an ephemeral draw, since soon the Swiss would go ahead again. The Asturian changed the entire attack giving entry to the debutants Nico Williams y Borja Iglesias Already Jeremy Pino. The national team improved, but it was not enough.
Unai Simon – APPROVED
Undisputed in the goal of Spain. He premiered uniform and came out in yellow. Luis Aragonés would never have allowed it. In the first minutes of the game he was cold-blooded to play the ball inside the area with Eric García and Pau Torres. Little could do in Akanji’s goal. With the first half drawing to a close, he saved the second with a big hand. He wasn’t the main culprit in Embolo’s goal either, but the reality is that he conveys very little confidence.
Azpilicueta – SUSPENSE
Holder on the right side. He lost the duel with Akanji in the first goal for Switzerland. After a bad game, he was replaced in the final stretch by Carlo Soler.
Eric Garcia – APPROVED
Another fixed for Luis Enrique. Catalan does not stop progressing and his growth has been remarkable in recent months. He was not good in Embolo’s goal.
Pau Torres – APPROVED
He formed in the center of defense with Eric as a partner. Embolo’s power put both of them in trouble.
Jordi Alba – GOOD
The second Spanish captain plays every day with the National Team for his presence in the World Cup. In the first half, he tried to contribute in attack without much success and he was not good in defense. In the second act he took advantage of a great ball from Asensio to perfectly define the goal for Spain.
Busquets – APPROVED
The head of the Spanish midfield. Pending the defense and trying to find holes above.
Gavi – GOOD
The best in Spain in the first half, which wasn’t set very high either. He was in all of them, fighting every ball. In the mess he usually shines.
Pedro – SUSPENDED
Spain claimed its class in the first part, where it cost him to appear. He lost two balls that could be expensive for the national team. After a match in which he was unrecognizable, he was traded for Marcos Llorente.
Ferran Torres – APPROVED
One of the novelties of eleven. Luis Enrique already insinuated it in the previous press conference. He started with a heel on the right wing, where he tried his luck with a shot that ended in a corner. At 15 minutes he changed his position with Asensio to start playing false nine, although the exchange would be constant. After game time he was traded for Nico Williams.
Sarabia – APPROVED
Owner of the left wing of Spain. One of the most dangerous in the first half, where he combined well with Jordi Alba. He contributed little in the second half. He was traded for Yeremy Pino.
Asensio – GOOD
The great surprise of eleven. He started the match as a false nine, although he changed positions with Ferran Torres. In the second half, Jordi Alba’s goal was born from a start of his. He endured a crash, started driving with the left and served a ball to Jordi Alba that ended up inside the goal. After trying his luck once again with a shot lacking power, he made way for Borja Iglesias.
Borja Iglesias – GOOD
local hero. He entered the middle of a tremendous ovation for Asensio with less than half an hour remaining to make his debut for Spain. He associated and tried, but did not find the goal.
Yeremy Pino – GOOD
He jumped in the 63rd minute for Pablo Sarabia. His entry gave Spain speed, but he was not able to change the result.
Nico Williams – GOOD
Another who debuted with Spain. He entered for Ferran Torres to occupy the right wing. He created a lot of danger on the right wing.
Marcos Llorente – GOOD
He entered in the 70th minute for Pedri. He tried his luck with a long shot that narrowly missed the mark.
Carlos Soler – OUT OF TIME
He entered in the final minutes for Azpilicueta. He had the equalizer with a low shot that Sommer saved.
Luis Enrique – SUSPENSE
He surprised in the starting lineup with Asensio and without nine. He was not successful and he tried to remedy it in the second half, changing the entire attack with the entry of Borja Iglesias, Nico Williams and Yeremy Pono, but it was of little use.
