Spain is the top scorer of the Euro tournament. But looking at the opportunities they get They should have done better. When the striker is not decisive enough. It makes it more difficult to hit the target.

“If Luis Enrique has his way They will continue to attack when they concede goals in this game. But the midfield in this game played very normal.”
“We didn’t manage the game very well and sometimes we didn’t dare to risk going up. I believe Spain didn’t plan a route to the semi-finals like that. But it’s already happening.”
“And somehow we are in the semi-finals. It seems that we have to use the way we do well is ball possession.” ufabet
