Spain cannot be taken lightly


Madrid: Before Olmo scored his third goal of the knockout round in the 25th minute, 16-year-old Yamal became the youngest goal scorer in a Euro or World Cup by canceling out Randal Kolo Muani’s first goal with a masterful strike in the 21st.

With another show of offensive football, particularly in the first half, the Spaniards—who have won every game in the tournament so far—confirmed their status as the favorites. This style of football is significantly different from the tiki-taka passing game that won them world and European crowns over ten years ago.

“I’m thrilled to have reached the championship game,” Man-of-the-Match Yamal said. “Winning it is now the most crucial thing to do. You wouldn’t anticipate a goal that quickly; we were in a tough situation. I’m glad I was able to place it where I wanted it to be. I’m delighted and satisfied with the outcome.

Although the 2022 World Cup finalists never lived up to expectations with a very poor conversion percentage that extended into the semifinals, it was an anti-climactic finale to France’s championship. – News reports
