Euro 2024 qualifiers; Scotland 2-0 Spain
The Spanish national football team lost to Scotland 2-0 in their second match in the qualifiers for Euro 2024.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): Luis Delafuente's students, who won a big victory against Norway in the previous match, were surprised against Scotland last night and lost the game with two goals from Scott McTomini.
Scotland started the game better and only 7 minutes had passed when Scott McTommy scored the first goal of the game.
It was on Pedro Porro's mistake on the right side of Spain's penalty area that Andy Robertson got the ball and his back pass was turned into the first goal of the game by McTaminy with a weak shot.
After this goal, the Spanish players took the lead, but in the 15th minute, it was Scotland who could have scored, but Christie's shot went wide of the visitors' goal.
The attacks of both teams continued and in the 23rd minute, there was nothing left for Spain to equalize, but Khoslo's header hit the goal post of Scotland.
In the following, it was the Spanish team that had most of the ball and the field, but this advantage did not lead to a special situation, and finally the first half ended with the same goal in favor of Scotland.
Spain started the second half with two substitutions, with Danny Carvajal and Nico Williams replacing Pedro Porro and Mikel Oyarzabal, but it was Scotland who scored again in the 51st minute. This time it was Kieran Tierney who made a great run down the left to leave Carvajal and send the ball into the Spanish penalty area. The ball went to McTomini with a poor save by Rodri, and he opened the goal for Kepa Arrizabalaga with a precise header.
After this goal, Luis Delafuente made another offensive substitution and sent Iago Aspas to the field instead of Mikel Merino, and it was Aspas himself who could compensate for one of Spain's goals in the 62nd minute, but he could not take advantage of the good opportunity that was created for him.
In the following, the Spanish players tried hard to make up for the lost goals, but the host team controlled the situation well and managed to achieve a sweet victory.
