The Spanish team beat Romania last night (1-2) in the first match with the Catalan player Robert Moreno in the lead, a duel that paves the way to the Eurocopa 2020 and that resulted in an excellent homage to Luis Enrique after the tragic death of his daughter who forced him to leave the bench of the national team.
Tatarusanu, goal of the Olympique de Lyon, was the main star of the beginning. At 40 seconds, he resolved the situation before Paco Alcácer and five minutes later he had to stop another forward shot. Jordi Alba, at quarter time, could also score in a play that appeared as an exhalation on his part.
Sergio Ramos had to be 0-1. He did it from the penalty spot. The play was born in Ceballos boots, the most outstanding of the selection, to be trampled in the local area in an action that was not inadvertent by Aytekin, the referee of the party. Ramos transformed the maximum penalty by getting his eighth goal in the last nine games. Spain did not relax, but quite the opposite. The goal caused the team to look even more for the second and if it did not find it was because Tatarusanu saved the pile of opportunities that were accumulated.
It was not until the beginning of the second half that the ball wanted to enter. A good combination between Ceballos, Jordi Alba and Paco Alcácer ended up with the goal of the latter. 0-2 forced a last effort by the Rumanians, spurred by the entrance of Ianis Hagi, the son of the legendary George Hagi, and Florin Andone, the author of the goal that gave birth to the game.
Expulsion and suffering
When it was a little more than ten minutes left, Llorente was sent out with a direct red and Spain suffered to keep the result. Moreno protected the defense by entering Mario Hermoso, but the great player ended up being goalkeeper Kepa, who saved the furniture with an incredible break in the added time.
