England Shocked Spain in UEFA Nations League

England making their UEFA Nations League group still alive and well following their shocked 3-2 away victory over current table topper, Spain.

Both sides already met earlier in the tournament with La Furia Roja grabbing maximum points and that result seemed to put them in a rather relaxed manner.

That situation was taken into advantage by Three Lions as they put on a more counter attacking setup which resulted positively as they got themselves ahead after just 16 minutes through Raheem Sterling.

Keen on chasing that deficit, Luis Enrique poured forward vigorously, but were not organized defensively giving away too many spaces for England’s counter attack, which led into another goal netted by Marcus Rashford on 29 minutes.

That first 45 minutes pretty much saw a very clumsy Spanish side that couldn’t get their composure right and eventually got further punishment as Sterling netted his second before half time break.

Trailing by three goals didn’t stop La Furia Roja’s attacking ambition as with more focus and organization they put on a much better display in the second half which saw them pulling one back from Paco Alcacer on 58 minutes.

However, combination of bad luck and rush plays in front of goal, denied Enrique’s men opportunity to get things back on track, though they did grab one more consolation goal deep in stoppage time from Sergio Ramos’ header.

A sensational result for England indeed, but Spain will be really disappointed on their failure to manage the game better in the first half and get their offensive play working better after the break.
