The selection of Spain saw the faces with the combined of Morocco during the afternoon this Monday in the Education City. The corresponding party to the eighth of final of the World-wide Glass of Qatar 2022 presented like one of the duels more parejos of the round, since the Moroccan group showed to be a hard rival when achieving the first place of his group, whereas the 'Red' was punished by the fault of forcefulness in his last crashes, finishing like seconds of group.

The meeting began following the 'script' that foresaw . The square directed by Luis Enrique adueño completely of the possession of the balloon, led by a Pedri that once again gave a 'masterclass' in the half of the field when handling the 'threads' of the team. By his part, the Moroccans expected in his own field and bet to the error of the rival or to an own recovery to go out to the against, with the hopes put in the speed of his players of band.

The Iberian wanted to take advantage of the exit to the touch from the bottom of the African and presionaban high, looking for a mistake of Bono. Of this way, arrived the first clear opportunity of the party, when the guardameta of the Seville gave an erroneous pass that it was intercepted by Jordi Alba, the one who sent a centre of first intensión to the area received by Ferran and later finished by Gavi, although the action did not cost by offside. A pair of minutes afterwards, Asensio had the first in his feet, but his finish crashed in the lateral network.

Far to intimidate by the siege of the Spaniards, the 'Lions of the Atlas' grew with the happen of the minutes and to the 32' Mazraoui commanded a strong shot between the three sticks, which was detained by Unai Simón. Nevertheless, the clearest occasion until this moment arrived of the hand of Aguerd, that received a centre in the area girl but his head butt went above the arch. Like this then , both squares headed to the changing rooms with a tie to 0 and the feeling that the duel would be very difficult of destrabar.

The second part, in 'white'

When returning of the rest, the two teams showed much braver and soltaron in attack, although the defensive level of the meeting was very high and the majority of these rushed forward finished in at all. To the minute 54 the Moroccans 'smelt' the danger, when Dani Elm received the spherical in the frontal of the area and sent a powerful shot to the arch of Bono, that repelled the balloon with the fists.

Spain began to do with the control of the party while it ran the second part and Luis Enrique gave him step to Morata and Carlos Soler to the detriment of Marco Asensio and Carlos Soler, changes that gave him a bit more than clarity in attack to the Iberian that did not find the way of 'break' the 'wall' imposed by some increasingly shy Moroccans in offensive. Nico Williams jumped to the field in the 75' to revolutionise the forward and six minutes afterwards filtered the balloon for Álvaro Morata, whose finish without angle visited all the front of the goal.

Unai Simón, the 'saviour'

Any of the two teams could impose along the 90 minutes and the meeting went to the extention. The extra time kept the tonic of the final stretch of the regular time and Spain followed 'subjecting' to his rivals thanks to a 'punzante' Nico Williams, although the attacks continued being in vain. In fact, the 'Lions of the Atlas' could put by in front in the marker to the 104', when Unai Simón 'enlarged' in front of Cheddira in the hand manually and detained the finish of the forward.

The penaltis defined everything

In spite of that the 'Red' did not leave of 'merodear' the Moroccan area, the titanic defence of the African prevented that these could take out advantage, although Pablo Sarabia had the goal of the vitoria in the last minute but his shot hit in the stick of the goal of Bono. Of this way, and as sucedió in the same instance in the World-wide of Russia 2018, everything would define from the twelve steps. To the equal that in that tournament, the Spaniards were braked by the rival goalkeeper and did not attain the pass to the following round.
