Great match for the Spaniards.
In addition to Spain’s success in securing qualification for the round of 16 of Euro 2020, the La Roja team set a record for them by defeating Slovakia by 5-0 on Wednesday evening.
Spain started the Euro competition modestly after drawing with Sweden and Poland, and Luis Enrique’s battalion received sharp criticism to the point of calling for the coach’s sacking.
But the response came from the Spaniards with five goals in the net against Slovakia, so that this became the largest result achieved by the Spanish team in the history of its participation in the Euro, in its 43rd match historically.
Manchester City star Ferran Torres also had a special record, after scoring a goal for Spain against Slovakia just 44 seconds after coming off the bench.
This goal is the fastest goal scored by a substitute in the European Championship in 17 years.
Unfortunately, the great victory over Slovakia did not satisfy the Spaniards to seize the top of the group, after Sweden beat Poland in the last moments and reached the final eight in first place.
It is worth noting that Spain will meet the runner-up of the world champion Croatia next Monday in the round of 16.
