Spain Advance To Nations League Finals After Late Morata Goal Against Portugal

THEWILL APP ADS 2

September 28, (THEWILL) – Spain defeated Portugal 1-0, to snatch a spot in the Nations League Finals from their Braga hosts as a result of Alvaro Morata’s late strike.

With Portugal having the better of the first-half opportunities, Spain had looked destined to be disappointed in its attempt to overtake Fernando Santos’ team atop Group A2.

However, Luis Enrique’s substitutions at the break altered the outcome, and Morata hammered in Nico Williams’ header across goal to steal a priceless victory.

Spain will compete in the tournament alongside Croatia, Italy, and the Netherlands as a result of the thrilling victory, leaving Portugal to regret wasted opportunities and shoddy defending in the dying minutes.
