In a party of big intensity that decided in extra time, the delegation of Spain won to his similar of the Ivory Coast this Saturday (5-2) in the corresponding party to the quarter-finals of the Games Olimpicos in the Miyagi Stadium. They were the so many of Eric Bailly in the minute 10, Dani Elm (29), Max Gradel (89), a hat trick of Rafa Mir (92 – 117 - 120) and a penalti of Oyazabal (98) those that defined the marker.

The party did not begin very well for the ones of "The Red" since the central Óscar Minguenza to alone 7 minutes to having initiated the party had to be replaced by Jesús Vallejo. This went afterwards that it suffered an apparent relapse of the injury that suffered in the party against Egypt precisely in the party that played afterwards to have recovered.

This desconcentró to the Spanish selection the sufficient as so that Eric Bailly carried up the selection of Ivory Coast a pair of minutes afterwards. This was possible thanks to a shot of corner earned in this moment and that no desaprovechó to put the balloon in the arch without that Unai Simón could do something in this regard.

The representatives of Ivory Coast saw safer, even arrived to put in aprietos to Unai Simón a second occasion in the minute 22 of the party, while Spain, by his part, treated to recover the rhythm in front of the first time that a team goes him up in the marker since they initiated the olympic games.

This yes, the efforts of Spain treating to recover the rhythm surrendered fruits, since in the minute 29 the tie arrived of the hand of Dani Elm the one who took advantage of a centre to carry the balloon to the arch of Ivory Coast.

Afterwards to having equalised the result, Spain showed safer, but Ivory Coast fixed them to him to cause him another fright to "The Red" although Unai could detain to time the shot of Issoumaila Dao.

Spain did not leave to look for the second so much, went a finish of Pedri that went through on of the arch and a goal cancelled to Mikel Oyarzabal by position advanced what marked the final minutes of the first-half.

The second time

Initiated the second time, Spain continued looking for ways and go up in the marker. In fact, to alone ten minutes to having initiated the party, the ones of Ivory Coast already had four frights courtesy of Dani Elm, Asensio, two attempts Oyarzabal that could not define, and a shot of Merino that bumped with the stick.

Elm had another moment in which it appeared in the zone of Ivory Coast in the minute 57, but again did not achieve to define the assistance that did him Pedri. The rest of the minutes of the second half passed without that Spain generated more danger in the zone of the Ivory Coast. The defence of the combined of "Them Éléphants" seemed tornarse more efficient to cut the arrivals of "The Red".

However, in spite of the constant siege of Spain, Ivory Coast achieved to annotate a second so much of the hand of Max Gradel in the minute 89. Many gave by lost the party, but incredibly a pair of minutes afterwards Rafa Mir attained to equalise the marker. Like this the party was to time added.

The extra time and the end

The time added initiated with an attempt of Gradel few minutes after the pitazo initial and that it was detained by Vallejo, but Spain finished taking him out benefit to an opportunity to go up in the marker for the first time in the party. A penalti earned by Oyarzabal in the minute 98.

Although they found up in the marker, Spain wanted to increase the difference and avoid another surprise like the one of the minute 89. In the minute 110 Rafa Mir and Oyarzabal had another almost clear occasion that any could define in the area marfileña.

For this point of the appointment, the footballers of Ivory Coast did not achieve to generate greater danger in the Spanish area in spite of that tried to go up to generate opportunities to equalise the marker. What would finish to sentence the party was a second and third so much of Rafa Mir in the minute 117 and 120 that they were the two goals that achieved Spain and the hat trick of the Spanish forward of the Wolverhampton.
