Spain already has the ticket for the Euro Cup |  Soccer |  Sports

The Spanish team had two games left to close its qualification for Euro 2025. With the fourth victory in four games in which it scored 15 goals and only conceded three, La Roja finished tonight in Tenerife against Denmark – the rival it He had already won four days ago in Velje—his participation in the continental tournament that will be held in Switzerland next summer. Spain rested for more than 70 minutes, until the captain, Irene Paredes, finished twice in a snap on two corner kicks taken by Alexia Putellas to rescue a team that was groggy after receiving a second goal from Thomsen in a play as primary as a goal kick. The Danish goalkeeper threw the ball to the center of the field, Pernille Harder combed it and the Danish attacker was left alone to finish against Misa Rodríguez.

The mood of both teams changed with the two actions of the center. Spain boxed Denmark into their area in the final minutes until Tere Abelleira, already in stoppage time, filtered a formidable pass for Lucía García’s deep unmarking. The Manchester United forward controlled her ball with her right leg and put it into the net with her left in a surgical finish.

The first half was very uncomfortable for Spain, very imprecise in the construction of the game. The Danes stole the ball again and again from Monste Tomé’s team. Denmark’s goal came from an early error in a clearance by Leila Ouahabi that fell short. Snerle controlled the ball a few meters from the area, advanced and put in a cross that Thomsen finished off with a great header to overcome the stretch of Misa Rodríguez. La Roja, also much more unsuccessful in the pressure than just four days ago, was not able to test the Danish goalkeeper during the first 45 minutes. Without overflow on the wings – neither Athenea del Castillo nor Eva Navarro managed to harm the Danish full-backs – and with many errors in the center of the field, Spain became blurred while the losses were repeated over and over again and Harder launched the counterattacks with drives. of the Nordic ones. Even Jenni Hermoso, a soccer player with exceptional quality on her left foot and a fabulous command of space, made mistakes with the ball.

Tomé stirred up the team at half-time. She brought in Lucía García and Mariona Caldentey and retired Athenea and Navarro, but Spain did not change until they equalized the match from a set piece with the captain’s two shots – UEFA scored one of the two goals against Bruna Vilamala because the ball hit she-. Even Mariona, who just four days ago had scored a penalty with all the calm in the world in Velje, missed from 11 meters after the referee pointed out a handball that cut off a filtered pass from Putellas inside the area.

Vilamala, who had only joined the national team three days ago due to Aitana Bonmatí’s injury, debuted with a goal in La Roja on the day he turned 22. The night also left the ownership of the Canarian Misa Rodríguez. In her homeland, the Real Madrid goalkeeper conveyed confidence—despite the two goals—in her actions after losing her place in goal in the group stage of the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand by conceding four goals against Japan, although He did not make any glaring errors. Misa, who stated in several interviews that Jorge Vilda – the then coach – had put her on the bench for an extra-sports reason, is trying to regain ownership with Spain, which since the World Cup has been in the most important matches for Cata Coll , which was also done earlier this season with the Barcelona goal.

With just over a year left until the Euro Cup begins, the team is running as one of the big favorites—it is first in the FIFA ranking—to win one of the two titles it still does not have. In 2023 they won their first World Cup and last February they won the UEFA Nations League. Before the Euro, he will participate this July in Paris in his first Olympic Games to try to continue a brilliant cycle that began a year ago and that the best generation of footballers in the history of Spain can prolong if they win these next two summers. two great tournaments that he still does not have in his record.
