Euro 2024, Spain beat Georgia 4-1 to reach quarter-finals against Germany


the Georgia By Willy Sagnol A bit scary Spain By Luis de la Fuente, who eventually deservedly snatched a ticket to the quarter-finals of Euro 2024. After 15 minutes of absolute dominance by the Iberians, instead, the Georgians took a surprise lead with a bizarre own goal. From Le Normand, who in his attempt to anticipate Kvaratskhelia hit his goal with the innocent Unai Simon in disbelief. The Red Furies were not discouraged and found their first equaliser at the end of the first half with a wonderful shot from Rodri’s left foot, surgically into the corner, then spread in the second half. Fabián Ruiz’s header in the 51st minute after an assist from Yamal made it 2-1, while Nico Williams’s wonderful goal, and Dani Olmo’s goal in the final made it 4-1. The Red Furies suffered their fair share against a well-organised Georgian side who tried to play openly and with their cards at their disposal.

What makes the difference, in addition to experience, is also the technical level that is greatly preferred by the Spanish national team, which achieved its fourth victory in this European Championship after its victory over Croatia. Italy And Albania. In the quarter-finals, Luis de la Fuente’s team will face the hosts Germany, led by Julian Nagelsmann, and the match will be played on Friday, July 5 in Stuttgart. The semi-finals of Euro 2024 are now up for grabs, and the two teams that have performed much better among the big teams will face each other, with the Iberians initially slightly favored in terms of technique and game perspective compared to Germany, who will instead play. On their side is the fact of playing at home. Nine goals have been scored and only one conceded, and Spain wants to reach the final of this European Championship: however, they will first have to overcome the German wall and it will not be easy at all for De la Fuente’s men.
