The Spanish national team tied (1-1) this Saturday in Oslo against Norway because of Joshua King's local penalty goal in minute 94, which slows the plenary session of Spain in the qualifying phase for Euro 2020, still well on track but in need of improvement.
Norway avoided seven out of seven and on Tuesday against Sweden, again at home, Spain will look for the ticket to the continental appointment that escaped him for a Kepa penalty in the discount. Those of Robert Moreno had sparks but they did not live their particular National Holiday on October 12.
Saul scored from outside the area, after a discreet first half, but Norway finished better. In the end, 1-1 did justice and spoiled the historic day for a Sergio Ramos who achieved the record of matches with Spain (168), and also saw yellow that carries a penalty, with a more prominent role of his partner Albiol in the rear, but also failed to save the victory.
'La Roja' is left with 19 points, without responding to the triumphs of Sweden (14) and Romania (13) within Group F. For those of Lars Lagerback, who are left with 10, it was certainly a vital day, and they fought him until that long discount. Moreno's people were choked by the clash in Oslo, on the merit of a concentrated rival, well armed and together to defend, and with quality to create problems.
Ceballos and Fabián left the first details but after the first play of the game, with harassment without a shot, and a center of Navas' death shortly afterwards also without a auctioneer, the offensive baggage was nil. Within the distributed control, that of 'La Roja' was without rhythm, while the Norwegians forgave.
Odegaard grew, demonstrating its high level this course with the Royal Society, and King found the ad with a candid auction. Elabdellaoui also had the right back, just against Kepa, and a pair of corners topped by the Norwegians closed the first half. Spain needed ideas and rhythm, but the resumption brought quick solutions with another strong start.
Ceballos opened Bernat and the rejection of his center reached him Saul, who with the right and a treacherous boat made the 0-1. Norway followed his own and the response was immediate, in another corner, with King. The triple champion of Europe sought refuge in possession and Fabian shot at the stick, but the last 20 minutes were again local, until they saved the undefeated they have at home for three years.
The center of the Spanish field failed before the rival pressure and Albiol, who returned to the national team three years later, multiplied in each court. Again Moreno suffered against the Nordics, as in Mestalla, until a penalty in 92 ', with Kepa being late for the crash, this time gave some prize to the Norwegians.
