Spain lacks realism. At the end of this match, the ball possession rate was thus largely to its advantage (76% – 24%), Spain also created the most opportunities with 5 shots on target against 1 for Sweden but did not succeed in snatching the victory (0-0).
After a preparation disrupted by the positive tests in both caps, the duel between Spain and Sweden resulted in a scoreless split that allows Slovakia to lead Group E.
Dominatrix yes, but Spain did not find the solution against Sweden (0-0), this Monday in Seville, for its entry into the competition in the Euro. Unable to change the pace, La Roja missed a great opportunity to start his race well against a team yet within his reach. –
Before this Monday night’s match in Sevilla, the last matchup in the final phase of a major tournament was on June 14… 2008, the year in which La Roja’s golden generation was crowned first.
