Spain Dominates Huelva Match and Secures European Qualification
The Spanish team showcased their dominance from start to finish in the match held in Huelva, just as they have been doing throughout the European qualification campaign. Under the guidance of coach Santi Denia, the Spanish team completely controlled the game against their opponents.
There was no need for Spain to resort to a defensive formation with five defenders and four midfielders to protect their lead. Instead, they played with confidence and speed, constantly pressuring their opponents. The opposition, led by Fran Perez, struggled to find inspiration against Spain’s solid defense. It was Alvaro Fernandez who made an impact on the game, delivering a cross that was touched by Diego Lopez before Carlos Martin found the back of the net. Although Granada’s objective may not have seemed clear, it was crucial for them to protect their lead.
Spain dominated the game for almost 90 minutes, keeping their opponents within a 20-meter radius and denying them any chance to break through.
Dominance and Goals
Coach Santi made substitutions, bringing in Samu, Diao, and Pablo Torre to take advantage of a fatigued opponent’s defense. The result was inevitable. Samu immediately made an impact, and Pablo Torre found the back of the net.
It didn’t matter to Hungary whether they lost by one or two goals, and Spain didn’t make much effort to change the scoreline either. The script remained the same – clear dominance from Spain, who continue to excel and solidify their position as the group leaders.
