France and Spain meet tonight in the great tournament between European nations. The Spanish team is in its first final of the UEFA Nations League (the second to be held in the history of the tournament), but a priori it will not be easy for him to lift the cup. He will face the almighty France, the main candidate for the title and her black beast in official matches. However, the ‘bleus’ also started with the vitola of favorites in the Eurocup and were eliminated at the first exchange.
In fact, the French came close to failing again last Thursday, in their long-suffering semi-final against Belgium. In the first half, the Belgian team was a steamroller that passed over their rival and went to the dressing room tunnel with two goals, but the talent of the trident Mbappé-Benzema-Griezmann served for the French team to come back in the second half . For its part, Spain has just defeated Italy, the current European champion, at home, with a great team game despite numerous casualties.
The outcome of the new duel will be known this Sunday, starting at 20:45 hours, when the ball begins to roll on the lawn of the San Siro stadium in Milan. The game can be seen on open television through The 1 of the TVE and, online, from the RTVE Play platform, which replaces the old A la carte platform. Likewise, it will be possible to follow the minute by minute from the El Confidencial website.
In the hands of Gavi and Ferran Torres
It is already a tradition that Luis Enrique’s lists are questioned. In this one, there was not even a pure nine – Álvaro Morata and Gerard Moreno lost due to injury – but it was not necessary thanks to the contribution of Ferran Torres, who has 12 goals in just 21 caps. At just 21 years old, he is the third active player with the most goals in the National Team and no one has scored so much in such a short time. If he continues at this rate, the City footballer threatens the legacy of David Villa, who has the highest scoring records in La Roja.
Others who agreed with Luis Enrique were Gavi, of unusual maturity at 17 years old; and Yeremi Pino, which barely has 18 and also had a notable role against Italy. “The performance against Italy of all the players of the absolute was exceptional, fantastic. It was a very complete game, of all, but to highlight the one of the youngest, the performance of those who debuted”, celebrated the U21 coach. Luis de la Fuente at a press conference prior to Spain-Slovakia this Friday at La Cartuja.
“What about Gavi is exceptional the day of his debut. The truth is that since I have already seen him many times in lower categories and in the first team I saw him how he behaved at Wanda, he knew what he was going to bring us: personality, courage, quality. The situation does not weigh on him, he is a physical marvel, he runs many meters. It was a spectacular level “, analyzed, for his part, Luis Enrique, who did not look at the age to choose the starters, as he already did with Pedro or Ansu Fati.
