Switzerland 0-1 Spain

Goal: Sarabia (13e)

The sand merchant was ahead of Geneva.

Quickly ahead thanks to Pablo Sarabia, Spain then contented themselves with managing their lead to calmly digest Switzerland. First victory in this League of Nations for the Redwhich ranks second in Group 2, two lengths from Portugal.

A big ten minutes is the time it took the PSG player to make a difference. Cömert misses his rebound, Marcos Llorente crosses the line and Sarabia finishes off a raging tackle, before the video confirms the striker’s legal position (0-1, 13e). The 22 actors don’t know yet, but it’s time to go to bed. Mistress of the billboard and the balloon, the Red then just purring to master as he pleases a Swiss team that has clearly lost some of its superb.

Embolo tries to get Unai Simon out of his free-kick, but misses his head completely (25e). Well served on the surface on a good one-two with Alba, Sarabia sends him a praline in the stands (30e), before seeing the Nati wait for the locker room to return to raise – a little – the sound. But the revolt is far too tender and Shaqiri strikes directly at Simon (53e), while the red armada is badly negotiating several promising blows. Embolo does not take advantage of a haphazard exit of Simon away from his cages (87e) and Djibril Sow’s last chance is deflected out of bounds by the Iberian rearguard (90e+4). The corner will not be played, much to the chagrin of the Swiss. Curtain, Spain leaves with what she had come for and the Nati follows a third loss of rank.

It seems a long way off in the summer of 2021.
