Euro 2020 qualifiers

Sweden 1 - Spain 1

They left it late, but Spain made sure of their place in next summer’s European finals after a 1-1 draw in Sweden. Local keeper Olsen had to save from Fabián, Rodri and Gerard Moreno early on, but after that the Scandinavians were on top, with De Gea (who left the field injured later on) having to keep out Quaison, Forsberg and Berg. Some four minutes in to the second half Berg headed the opener, and it looked like Spain were heading for their first qualifying round defeat in six years before substitute Rodrigo deflected a Fabián shot into the net in injury time. Roberto Moreno’s team are now sure of one of the top two spots, and with two home games to come they will be looking to clock up enough points to ensure one of the top seed positions for the finals.

Norway 1 - Spain 1

Spain were a goal up against Norway and just seconds away from mathematically qualifying for the Euro 2020 finals, but an injury time penalty meant they still have a bit of work to do. Saúl fired Roberto Moreno’s side into the lead at the beginning of the second half, and Fabián hit the woodwork twice with long shots after that. With the game coming to an end though, Kepa brought down Elabdellaoui in the area, and King fired home the resulting spot kick to deprive Spain of the victory. (12.10.19)
