The selection directed by Luis Enrique has achieved a key victory in front of Sweden that allows him put in the Glass of the World. Gavi, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets were the representatives of the FC Barcelona on the field and celebrate the big attainment of the selection.
Spain was of more to less against Sweden in the first part of the party. The national selection began very 'enchufada' and forceful in front of a Swedish group that opted for following the same plan that against Georgia: expect, very positioned, and leave him the balloon to the rival. 'The Red' had the balloon and was too comfortable, but without generating danger of face to the area of Robin Olsen that happened some 45 very calm minutes.
To the Spaniards, especially in the second stretch of the first time, was costing him the driving and was Sweden the one who was having the best occasions in front of the uncertainty of the venues, that were 'costing' of the tie, a result that served to seal the classification to the World-wide. Sarabia Was the one who gave the first warning, in the best minutes of Spain. The player of the Sporting CP shot with thread looking for the long stick and the spherical left was, by little, brushing the stick.
That was one of the few, by not saying the only, clear opportunity that had Spain in the first part, but was Forsberg the big protagonist of Sweden, with clear approaches and 'forgiving' in The Cartuja a few times. To the chamber of hour, signed a big played individual from three chambers of field. It left of several players and commanded a shot raso from the frontal that did not find goal by millimetres. In the 38', remató of volley in the second stick and went back to 'escape' by by few. Sweden was generating danger with very little and Spain suffered more than the necessary.
Slight improvement in the second part
The directed by Luis Enrique were risking too much and in the beginning of the second part repeated the script with a Sweden that wanted to carry the party and that brushed the goal in ones explain opportunities. Isak Was the first in raising to the fans in The Cartuja after a bad delivery of Azpilicueta in the frontal of the area that took advantage of the forward of the Real Sociedad to steal and finish, but went high.
Spain tried to react through Raúl of Tomás that was being the most incisive player of the venues. 'RdT' Had a finish in the first stick, of head, winning him the position to Claesson, but strolled by the area girl and did not arrive anybody to push it. In the 56' Sarabia put a balloon to the heart of the area, but cleared Lindelof to avoid surprises in the area. With the happen of the minutes, 'The Red' was feeling more comfortable and achieved to arrive with more ease to the area.
Morata, to the hour of party, received a balloon in the area, but put it to the heart of the area instead of finishing and did not find the one who hunted the ball. Shortly after, Rodrigo sent a very long centre for Dani Elm, but without effectiveness and the forward of the Juventus went back to appear for desmarcarse, go in speed and incordiar to the Swedish, but did not find the pass in the second stick and kicked very toneless.
'Suspense'... And Morata, hero!
'The Red' did not have it easy in The Cartuja because, although they were improving in the offensive facet, seguían the frights every time that Sweden approached to the area of Unai Simón. Sanberg, just after going in to the field, signed an impressive Chilean from out of the area that left above the crossbar. Claesson Also 'warned' with an approach and, when it remained only in front of the guardameta Spanish, fell to forgive once again to the venues.
Morata Appeared once again, in the 78', fell him a balloon inside the area, rained, but did not stick the volley and commanded it to the terracings. The Swedish went back to presionar, but without the same pressure that in the first part, but leaving the 'suspense' in a party that was him doing too long to Spain. The history finish with a goal of Álvaro Morata to four minutes of the end to finish the uncertainty.
