Already safe, with the ticket to the round of 16 in my pocket, lvaro Morata He toyed with his three sons about the technical area from which Luis Enrique had assisted in the redemption of Spain. In a way, his own too. The twins Alessandro and Leonardo and the little Edoardo, all in the national team clothing, brought a smile to their father, who, with the score to be released and the classification to be defined, had been unable to escape from his own ghosts from the point of view. penalty. It was the fifth in a row that the national team sent nowhere. “Decide that the penalty will be thrown by Morata because it would come in handy. The next game we’ll see who throws it,” he revealed. Luis Enrique, who had changed his shirt to put on one of Naranjito. “Those of us who are of an age, the one in ’82 was a disastrous World Cup for Spain. But I really like the shirt,” he added jokingly, relieved by a result that boosts the spirits of his people.

In the two video scoreboards of La Cartuja, a tremendous 0-5 reminded that now the important battle will be fought next Monday in Copenhagen, against Croatia. The rest of what happened this week and a half in Seville does not matter a bit. Something like that Morata must think, while Sergio Busquets, the captain, in his first game after his positive for Covid, gave explanations at the foot of the grass, after being chosen the best of the game. “Just before the change my calf went up a bit and the master didn’t want to risk it,” he explained, after standing for 71 minutes. “The cufflinks are raised up to his ears,” the coach pointed out, praising his figure. “He is a player with a unique personal and professional level. He has had a bad time,” he acknowledged.

A few meters from Busquets, in front of the Slovak press microphones, he gave explanations Martin Dubravka. A 1.91 tall guy whose patting his goalkeeper changed the appearance of an afternoon in which the goal seemed willing to continue giving Luis Enrique’s boys a slip. For about 20 minutes, Dubravka pretended to become an executioner but ended up dressed as a villain for his people. I guessed Morata’s penalty shot, but ended up immortalizing an image that the fans of Spain would take to forget. Pablo Sarabia he lashed out, slamming violently against the crossbar. And the ball, uncontrolled towards the sky of Seville, ended up becoming a winning slap for Spain by the Slovakian goalkeeper. That slap will unleash the Spanish storm.

Pablo Sarabia was precisely, together with Azpilicueta, Eric Garca and Busquets, one of the four novelties of the selector. The PSG player formed up next to Morata and Gerard Moreno and walked in almost all of them. In the germ of that first liberating goal, he scored another and ended up giving one more to Ferrn torres. We needed this match to gain confidence, give back the illusion to the people and the trust between us, he acknowledged, after his seventh game with the Spain shirt.

One month after his expired nationalization and only a few days after his losing battle with Lewandowski, Aymeric Laporte debut as a scorer. His header, already in the addition of the first part, served to sow calm for his teammates. “I am very happy for the goal, which I celebrated with a lot of anger. It is a dream to be here today and with these people. I have enjoyed it very much,” admits the central defender, who had shared behind during the first two games with Pau Torres. This time, his partner was Eric Garca.

There was a handful of protagonists in La Cartuja, who saw how in the discount Spain lost the group lead by a goal from Sweden. That changed the route from Glasgow to Copenhagen at the last minute. Then, Adama Traor He had gotten the biggest standing ovation from the stands, when he made his debut in an official match as a lane, replacing Azpilicueta. My characteristics make the fans lively, that they love me, joked the footballer Hercleus.

Today the cava has been uncorked and that will allow the player to realize his possibilities. I like everything I see and I hope to improve the level, admits the coach, reinforced by the words of the president of the RFEF, Luis Rubiales: “We are to death with him.” Of course, the only obsession is called Croatia.
