After Wales’ victory against Ukraine (1-0) qualifying the Dragons for the next World Cup, on the program in Qatar, the League of Nations continued this Sunday, with five matches scheduled for 20:45. In Group 2 of League A, Spain, which was controlled by Portugal (1: 1) on the first day, traveled to Prague to challenge the Czech Republic. Luis Enrique’s men were quickly surprised at Sinobo Stadium and with a considerably reworked eleven. Simon, abandoned by the defense, ill-adjusted, had to bow to Pesk (1: 0, 4.). The lead score finally reacted just before La Roja’s break over the miraculous Gavi, the author of a great curling shot from the left (1-1, 45 + 3).
After returning from the locker room, Ferran Torres took the place of Pablo Sarabio, but Spain continued to run into the Czech defense, such as this double intervention by Tomáš Vaclík (57th). Asensio (62nd) found the position of the National Team. In the event of a failure, the Spaniards were eventually punished by Kuchta, ideally released in depth and the author of a luxurious dive flight (2-1, 67). Spain, which surprised more than a realistic opponent (2 shots per goal, 2 goals), tried to return in the last quarter and Martinez found a balance on the gong (2-2, 90th). Spain is back in control after the original draw against Portugal.
Portugal Cristiana Ronalda is on the move!
In another group meeting, Switzerland, the Blues executioner at the last Euro, clashed with Cristiano Ronald’s Portugal. At the Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon, the Swiss thought they would open the score, but Seferovich’s goal was eventually canceled for handball at the start of the action. The Portuguese chipped and Carvalho opened the quarter-hour score (1: 0, 15th). Carried by this opener, the Lusitanians continued to push and Cristiano Ronaldo entered the scene. Within five minutes, CR7 offered a double (35th, 40th), allowing Portugal to take off for a break. After returning from the locker room, Cancelo finally completed the Portuguese victory (4: 0, 68th). With this great success, Portugal takes the lead of the group, just before the Czech Republic, to the surprise of everyone else..
Unlike Slovenia in Group 4 of League B, Serbia won thanks to the success of Mitrovič, Milinkovič-Savič, Jovič and Radonjič (4-1). Sweden lost (0: 2) against Norway’s inevitable Erling Haaland, author of the double (20th, 69th). A success that also allows the Norwegians to get into the leadership of the group independently, ahead of Serbia and Sweden with the same number of points. In Bulgaria, Georgia largely won (5-2) in Group C of League C and regained the leading position ahead of Northern Macedonia. Finally, notice Greece’s close victory over Kosovo (1: 0) in the match, which counts down to the second day of Group C, League C. With these three new points, the selection led by Gustav Poyet retains the first field.
