The party of Spain (and the classification to eighth) was an authentic madness. The trained by Luis Enrique, in the second half when Japan gave the surprise of the traced back, went in in a dynamics that, up to now, was unknown: Not having control of the party and, especially, remain without ideas in spite of having the balloon constantly. The answers did not arrive in the field and neither from the bench.

The Asturian trainer gave gone in to Ferran Torres and Marco Asensio first to try change the panorama of the meeting and, although both 'improved' (between what fits) what there was in the terrain of game. However, it was not sufficient and did not remain another option that try what had not done up to now: give entrance to Ansu Fati.

It situated like leading centre to be the main reference of the Spanish attack.

The defence of Japan did not yield

Although, from his entrance, Ansu showed dynamic and participatory, confronted in front of a very firm defence that did not yield spaces and that was very concentrated to keep the advantage in the marker.
