The second for Spain came after a good performance by Jordan. Gavi made it 2-0 in favor of ‘La Roja’ in the international friendly that was played shortly before the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Spaniards played comfortably, confident that more goals would come sooner or later. But it was not the case before going through the changing rooms, mainly due to the lack of aim in the shots from the front. Several tried to define, but only Ansu Fati really worried, who brushed the crossbar from the edge of the area.
The Spanish team came out of the locker room with two fresh players, David Raya and César Azpilicueta, but the same slogan of worrying about wear and tear. It was different for the host, who took a step forward and approached the rival goal, having to intervene Raya a couple of times.
He dampened the momentum of the Jordanian side Gavi with the second goal as he caught a misfired shot from Sarabia and fired another low and accurate, well out of Al Fakhouri’s reach. The two-goal lead put Spain’s triumph on track and set the stage for more changes.
The preview of Spain vs. Jordan
It will be the only preparation commitment that the ‘Red’ will play on the eve of Qatar 2022. Just days before the debut in the World Cup, the idea of the coach Luis Enrique Martínez is to test the pieces with a view to the game against Costa Rica of the Wednesday 23. In this way, the DT wants to see who can act as ‘9’.
And it is that, in the anteroom, Álvaro Morata will be reserved because he does not feel fully. So, the DT of Spain thinks of Ferran Torres or Dani Olmo to replace him. Meanwhile, Ansu Fati, the surprise in the squad, and Marco Asensio are emerging as those who have a safe place in the offensive trident.
In addition, Luis Enrique ratifies the confidence in Unai Simón in the goal. Also to Aymeric Laporte in the central defense. Also a guaranteed place for Sergio Busquets, as the axis of the team. Along the same lines, Koke Resurrección, recovered from an injury, must win the fight against Gavi, whose teammate in Barcelona, Pedri González, will start the duel.
