UEFA Nations League: Spain gives cante to England | sports

UEFA Nations League: Spain gives cante to England | sports


A Spain reckless and stung during the first time ended up fused before an England that split it to the against. He did it effectively against the passivity of Luis Enrique's team, hit from goal to goal with a colossal pájara. A full-fledged cante for which the Red had no amendment despite his courage of the second act, and with his adversary limited to the trench. A double thrust for Spain. Reduced to the earth in its attempt to clear the ghosts of Russia 2018. And, incidentally, forced now in his next duel, in Croatia, if he does not want to fall off the final phase of the League of Nations, boarding he had his feet.

4-3-3

Suddenly, the Spain that seemed to be afloat in this muddled League of Nations collapsed with a crash, without remedy. Two flashes of start of Thiago and Marcos Alonso in two consecutive corners turned out to be a mirage. Without continuity, the Red broke down badly, shivering in defense, uncontrolled in the axis and rasa in attack.

So ramshackle was the team of Luis Enrique that England was enough with two parvularia plays against. Both flourished at the feet of Pickford, the English porter. Sign of the Spanish misplacement. Pickford-Kane-Rashford-Sterling: goal. This time, Marcos Alonso arrived late with Sterling. Fourteen minutes later, the same broken one. Pickford quoted Kane several blocks away. The English captain, allegedly arrested by Sergio Ramos and Nacho al quite, won the assault on the first and the second and attended Rashford. On this occasion, Jonny arrived on the broom truck to stop the English striker. A cataract of nonsense that nobody was spared in a stunned Spain. To such an atrophied point that Ramos and Busquets, two centurions, knotted their feet and their blunders in the same play resulted in another banderillazo. A minced de Barkley surpassed the Spanish wall. Kane, stupendous even without goals, was the most rogue, jumped the fence and sent a message with Sterling. Three lashes without De Gea could have warmed his hands.

There were no crumbs from the Spain of Wembley and Cardiff. And, much less, of the Red that ravaged Croatia. Luis Enrique envied with a 4-3-3 replicated by his colleague Gareth Southgate, who has turned the page with the system of the three plants that he deployed in Russia. It is not a selection for uncorking, but in this transit in search of a new mold it manages occasionally if it can exploit some veins, such as Kane's – which plays better than what its apparent rigid body distills – and the sprinters Rashford and Sterling. In the Villamarín also had the hangers of Winks and Barkley, fluids in the middle. Despite the efforts of Thiago there was no way for the Spanish team to synchronize the lines. No overflow or control, bad stop for the remove. As a consequence, in the intermediate: the worst defeat in the history of Spain as a local in an official duel (according to the statistic Mister Chip).

Luis Enrique preferred not to point anyone to rest, and nothing changed until the hour of play approached. Paco Alcácer, the illuminated one of these days, and Ceballos – the boy of the bético nest – relieved Saúl and Aspas. Spain already had only one touch of cornet. With Ceballos, the stand burned. With Alcácer what arrived was the goal. And without delay, in his first action. In these times, Alcácer would embroider what was, the pennant of the corner or what fell from the third amphitheater. Asensio threw a corner kick and Alcácer, scoundrel, was anticipated by the air to the English poles. With remangue, Spain reached its most invigorating moment. An entanglement by Pickford on taking off almost reinforces the Spanish creed, but the referee did not see a penalty in the melee between the goalkeeper and Rodrigo. Seen the local outburst, Southgate retouched the rear and re-embedded as before, with three central. It had been a while since England only swept close to their net, with no offensive route. He gave the same. The group of Luis Enrique did not have another talent to row with Jonny pulls that pulls centers, give it to him without consequences, except a final shot to the crossbar of Marcos and the terminal goal of Ramos. By then, the clock had already dwindled for Red without much consolation. Her awful first part had already condemned her. On the scoreboard and in the general mood. All a downturn in his alleged post-globalization comeback.

A disturbing fact: Spain did not lose at home in official match for 15 years.

If La Roja wins in Croatia, it will be the first group

Despite the defeat, Spain still depends on itself to finish as the first group and dispute the Final Four of the League of Nations, which will be resolved in June 2019 in a venue yet to be decided. If those of Luis Enrique win in Croatia on November 15 will conclude as leaders because neither English nor Croats could reach the nine points that would add the Spanish. If Spain draw in Croatia, it will depend on what happens in the last match of the group that will play England and Croatia on November 18. A victory of the English in Wembley relegate La Roja to second place by the greatest number of goals conceded at home in their direct confrontations with those of Southgate. Croatia will be in the final if it prevails in the two remaining games.

The criteria for tiebreakers in case of equality of points are: points in direct confrontations; difference of goals in direct duels; goals scored in those matches; and goals as a visitor in the same matches.
