On 92nd minute, Rodrigo scored the goal and sent Spain to Euro 2020. The late goal was crucial for coach Moreno as it will be the first Euro tournament for him.

 

Pre-match activities

Spanish players met with a journalist before the Match. Coach Moreno talked about the VAR systems and how it will help the football. FIFA already used the VAR system during the World Cup 2018 in Russia.

1st half of the Match

Moreno decided to focus more on ball possession and started the game with Rodri and Alcantara. Both players have almost the same roles in their respective football clubs. Rodri is a significant player in Guardiola’s team, and Alcantara has the same position in Bayern Munich.

With the help of Rodri and Alcantara duo, Ceballos and Oyarzabal could run a lot on wings. Spain coach trusted Moreno as a forward and let him prove everyone wrong. Coach gave a deserved rest to Sergio Ramos (captain of the team) and started the game with Albiol and Martinez duo.

1st half was exciting as both teams played offensive game. Spain had a 70% ball possession and could score a goal in the first time, but the conversion of targeted shots was terrible. At the same time, Sweden had only two shots on target. Overall, we saw an excellent first half but without goals.

2nd half of the Match

The second half started with pressure from Swedish players. In the 50th minute, Sweden scored a goal. After a magical save from David De Gea, Swedish forward converted the rebound and scored a goal. Berg’s header was fantastic, and the fans went crazy at the stadium. Opening a score sheet against Spain is very hard, and Swedish players could do it in the 50th minute.

Sweden had only 27% ball possession in the second half. Despite a low percentage, host players were very offensive and registered five shots on target in the second half.

Spanish coach gave a chance to forward Rodrigo on 66th minute. The game continued with a different scenario – Spain had two center forwards (Rodrigo and Moreno).

Everyone thought that Match was already over, but Rodrigo had another scenario in mind. The referee added 2 minutes, and on the last second of Match, Spain scored. Genius pass from Fabian Ruiz gave a chance to Rodrigo. It was a tap in goal from Rodrigo in an empty net.

With a 92nd minute goal, Rodrigo sent Spain to Euro 2020. Spain already has 20 points, and no one can outwork Ramos’s team. Sweden will have to continue the battle for the second position in group F.
