A BOLA – Spanish fury turned in Copenhagen (Euro

Spain reached the quarter-finals of the European Championship for the seventh time in history. This Monday, Luis Enrique’s side beat Croatia 5-3, after extra time, to wrap up access to the next stage of Euro 2020 in a crazy match.

In Copenhagen, the Croats, deprived of Ivan Perisic (Covid-19), took the lead, taking advantage of an incredible mistake by Unai Simon. After a late pass from Pedri, the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper missed the ball and let it slide into the net in the 20th minute.

Spain, who had already taken advantage of two clear chances to score, returned to crown and equalized even before the break, through Pablo Sarabia, in the 38th minute.

In the second half, at 57 minutes, it was Roja She completed the comeback, headed by Cesar Azpilicueta, recording the best follow-up of Ferran Torres’ cross from the left. In the 77th minute, the Manchester City player raised the score to 3-1 and seemed to rule the match, but Croatia found strength and would equalize. In the 85th minute, in a insistent move, Orcic made 2-3, and Mario Pasalic, in the second minute of extra time, signed the score 3-3 and maddened the Croatian fans, which led to additional time in Barkin.

In a crazy meeting, the Spaniards would end up excelling in overtime. In the 100th minute, Alvaro Morata, who has been heavily criticized in recent weeks for his gray displays, fired with his left foot for the best goal of the afternoon, and Mikel Oyarzabal, with a score of 103, sealed the score 5-3 for Spain.
