Spain made history!

The national team forever broke with statistics and was able to defeat the United States for the first time in its history. When things got complicated, this team knew how to deal with it. They did so on the second day with a draw against Sweden and against the best team they had ever played in Pamplona was the icing on the cake, Spain did not give credit. Through despair La Rosa, built by Vilda, with 15 players by his decision, with all the lights waiting for a victory against the Americans, triumphed over the greatest football power in the world. Lia Kodina starts the scoring and Esther is sentenced in a match for history.,

Changed attitude for this second conflict of ‘new’ Spain, Vilda opted for a new 5-3-2 system with three central defenders and two free lanes. The opposite was the world champion. Most notably, Athenia waited on the bench, It was time for the best player on the team to rest from the start. On the other hand, Maitane y Oroz and Lia Codina got their prize. El Sadr prepared for the first game of the national team. Never before had a Spanish team visited this ground. The reception was great, with colors and songs towards La Rosa. And it is that there was also a double celebration since the attendance record for the La Rosa match was broken: 11,209 spectators vibrated at El Sadr.

Because of the intensity with which the United States was drawn to the conflict, Misa experienced some of the first tremors. aBefore 10 minutes had passed, he had to come out to deny a pass that left Horan alone in front of goal. What seemed impossible happened. La Rosa began to play and carried the load of the accident. Oroz wanted to perform in front of his countrymen and he took the initiative. Carmona and Ohane were encouraged by the band. Spain arrived. Lia had her first header chance. But something was missing. The attack was not connected, no matter how far Esther took it down. In the absence of arrival, Zornoza tried from afar.

With Rapinoe and Rodman gone, Smith was the one who fought the world. Ivana, Codina and Rocio managed to keep the pulse of the American forward. It was the national team that found the key in a corner kick taken by Zornoza, after an uproar, Kodina took advantage of it to send the ball to the back of the net. Making its debut, Blaugrana celebrated in style. His companions and the bench exploded.

The tone didn’t change much in the second part. Megastar Rapinoe was also seen dribbling balls in his box. The admission of Athenia gave another plus. Esther, in a measured cross from Ohane, was able to raise the score. The most obvious came from Olga Carmona’s shoes. Sevilian this time dared to try a centre-shot which was to be cleared by the American goalkeeper with a huge stretch. Such an approach had its own reward. Esther safely eliminates Ohane Cross in the back of the net.

A game and a consequence for history. A message to the unbelievers. Spain is alive. Spain wants the World Cup. Spain is much more than a select group of players who should reflect on what happened today.
