In the first match of these teams in Sharm El Sheikh. The Swedes won the World Cup 2: 1. On the other hand, in the group stage of Euro 2020, there was a negative draw. Now the game was a double bet. A win or a draw gave Spain a direct promotion to the World Cup. If the Swedes had won, they would have won the promotion to the tournament in Qatar.
In the 17th minute, the Italians had a great opportunity to take the lead. Euro defender Emil Forsberg provided a superb dribble and hit Simon’s goal from near the penalty area. The Spanish goalkeeper saved this shot perfectly. The same player got another chance to get into the bowlers list before the break. Forsberg got a cross from the left side of the field and hit the ball, but the ball went almost past the post.
In the first half of the match, the Spaniards captured 71%, but the Swedes created better chances to score. 17-year-old Gavi shone for La Roja in the first half of the match, and the Swedes’ best impression was Emil Forsberg.
The second edition was much quieter. Zlatan Ibrahimovic came to the field in the 73rd minute. When it seemed that the match would end in a goalless draw, Alvaro Morata intervened. The Spaniard used the rebound to cut the ball beautifully over the goalkeeper.
And so the team led by coach Enrique won promotion to the World Championships in Qatar in 2022. Sweden still has a chance to qualify, and they have to fight in the play-offs.
