Zapping Eleven World Cup EXCLUDED: Kalidou Koulibaly’s “Little Brother” interview!
Spain finally secures its first success in the League of Nations. After failing in the final against France in the last edition, Luis Enrique’s men had conceded two draws for the first matches of the group stage, against Portugal and the Czech Republic. Opposed this time to Switzerland, Sergio Busquets’ teammates won (1-0). Pablo Sarabia scored the only goal of the match by taking a cross from Marcos Llorente. Gavi impressed in La Roja’s midfield.
Take that risk there and manage to get away with it thanks to his technical skills.
