Spain and France met on Sunday night in Milan, Italy, in the UEFA Nations League final.
The two selections neutralized each other in the first 45 minutes without taking a lot of risk in the game, a physiognomy sending the two teams to the locker room with a goalless draw 0-0.
In a second, more animated period, the Blues were very close to opening the scoring but the crossbar repelled the strike at close range from Théo Hernandez (63 ‘), an action which in its continuity will give Mikel Oyarzabal the opportunity to open the scoring with a dazzling counter-attack for Spain (1-0, 64 ‘).
The proteges of Didier Deschamps will quickly return to the score with the masterpiece of the center-forward of Real Madrid, and the sumptuous roll of Benzema (1-1, 65 ‘) finding the top corner of the Spanish goalkeeper.
At the end of the match, France will score its second goal of the game, with the deep pass from Théo Hernandez to Kylian Mbappé (1-2, 80 ‘) who will be played by Unai Simon, a very contentious goal which will be, despite video assistance views, validated by game directors.
Despite the Iberian pressure at the end of the game, the French defense will remain united in the image of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, a score that will allow France to win in this second UEFA Nations League.
Earlier today, Italy won the small final by winning 2-1 against Belgium, with Italian goals scored by Nicolo Barella (1-0, 46 ‘) and Domenico Berardi (2-0, 65 ‘sp) on penalty.
The Belgian achievement was the work of Charles De Ketelaere (2-1, 86 ‘) at the end of the match.
