Mikel Oyarzabal fought with center back Dayot Upamecano. The forward won the duel and then resolved with precision to open the score (1-0) in Spain vs. France, in the grand final of the UEFA Nations League. The match takes place at the San Siro stadium in the city of Milan in Italy.
It all started with an excellent recovery for the team led by coach Luis Enrique. Among defenders Aymeric Laporte and Eric García stole the balloon from Kylian Mbappé, who had space to go directly to Unai Simón’s goal. Immediately, the ball reached the band for the appearance of César Azpilicueta.
The Chelsea marker found Sergio Busquets near the center circle. The captain of the Spanish team raised his head to review the available panorama. Then, the Barcelona midfielder threw the ball over the back of the back row of coach Didier Deschamps’ French team.
There was a rebound on the turf of the historic San Siro and that situation favored Mikel Oyarzabal. The Real Sociedad man got involved in a duel with defender Upamecano (he came in emergency to replace the injured Raphael Varane) and won it thanks to power and also with some fortune.
The truth is that Oyarzabal left the Bayern Munich footballer behind. Immediately afterwards, the forward of ‘La Roja’ crossed the ball over the second post and left goalkeeper Hugo Lloris without options, who only followed the path of the ball towards the nets with his eyes to score the 1-0 of the day .
