Luis de la Fuente’s team defeats the Czech Republic thanks to two goals in nine minutes from the Levante forward
Until Dani entered the field, Spain lived installed in frustration. Some more showy than effective skirmishes Puado and Barrenetxea one of the novelties in the eleven with Pipa, Pedrosa and Moncayola they were almost Spain’s only recourse to intimidate an opponent who was clingy and generous in defensive effort. The domain belonged to the players of the Luis de la Fuente but, as already happened to them in the match against Italy, they were not capable of transforming that superiority at times. Just two far and deflected kicks from Manu Garca in the entire first half, as well as a back pass from Puado that Barrenetxea narrowly missed.
Spain missed the clairvoyance of Zubimendi, suffering from a blow to the ribs. After half an hour, De la Fuente already sent him to warm up, but the test in the band was not positive and now the one that trembles is the Real, which counts on him for the end of Cup of this Saturday in front of Athletic. He had to watch from the bench how Spain continued to play with fire, as a goal by the Czechs, added to the win by Italy, also classified Slovenia, would have left the U21 out of the European Championship.
But the calm ended up arriving after Dani Gmez replaced in the attack point a misguided Abel ruiz. Four minutes later, Guillamn I observed the unchecking of Barrenetxea much more decisive since he passed from left to right and the end of the Real served it flat to Dani so that he would overtake Spain from the small area.
The Levante forward was going to round off his great day with the national jersey nine minutes later, with a violent cross shot that sealed the first place for Luis de la Fuente’s team. Goal accomplished.
