Spain After them and their fellow heavyweights, the Nations League A will remain in Group A above 4 Germany Saturday recorded narrow wins.
Michael O’Rourke scored earlier in the game as Under Helmings beat Spain 1-0 Switzerland In Madrid. In the 14th minute, Switzerland tried to get the ball out from behind, but after a miserable defeat, Real Sociedad forward scored the only goal of the game, leaving Oursabel with a simple finish.
“The goal is not their fault, it’s our good game,” said Spain coach Luis Enrique. “Our team did a great job and was rewarded with one goal.”
Barcelona’s teenagers Ansu Fathi and O’Reilly missed more chances as they failed to increase Luis Enrique’s lead.
Luis Enrique has selected a young experimental team led by two veterans, including Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos and Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets. The two stood firm at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium in Real Madrid’s training ground, in which Spain were able to win but were far from the best.
Switzerland carved out the first chance of the game but David de Gea denied Loris Benito, before the visitors handed the lead on a plate to Spain. De Gea’s opponent Jan Somer tried to score a small goal but Granit Shaka misjudged his pass, helping Michael Merino steal the ball and feed his Real Sociedad teammate Oirzaball.
Fathi, who became Spain’s youngest goal scorer in a former Nations League shooting against Ukraine in September, may have doubled the lead early in the second half, but his strike was blocked. The game dragged on as Soupain began to create more chances, but O’Rourke hit side netting from close range, but neither team was able to find another goal.
Adama Trora, who made his debut as a substitute after winning his first hat-trick against Portugal on Wednesday, said: “We have not been able to finish in the last three, we have to stay in it, especially me. But we get out of here with three points. ”
Germany scored on both sides to win Ukraine 2-1 on hand for the first win of the match.
Matthias Ginter put Germany ahead in the 20th minute after a superb performance from Antonio Riediger, and four minutes after the resumption, Leon Goretska tried to advance to the second goal of Ukraine keeper Georgi Bush.
Despite the rest of Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig players returning to the line-up, the Germans were far from their best, and Ruslan Malinowski’s penalty in the 77th minute woke up 20,000 spectators at Kyiv’s Olympic Stadium.
Germany repeatedly lost possession in the slow first half, allowing Ginter’s goal to quickly counter the attack before fixing their nerves.
Germany, who had drawn every three previous matches, were eager to increase their lead and created several excellent chances. Bush was able to save a good day before the ball bounced off his hand, allowing Goretska to score in the 49th minute. He came back to block the score and hit a Serge Gnabry shot wide.
Malinowski pulled back from one point but the Germans were able to defend their lead by surviving the hosts’ attack.
“I’m glad we won, but we could have gone 3-0 or 4-0,” said Germany coach Joachim Loew. “In some cases we dropped the ball very easily. They were tired when we took a 2-0 lead and we should have played more counterattacks. But overall we were firm and did not allow them too many opportunities, ”he said.
Spain, who host Ukraine on Tuesday, will face Switzerland in their decision to expand their League A group to four teams, although Germany, who did not win a single game in the opening match of 2018-19, will be eliminated.
