Portugal overwhelms the Czech Republic, Spain loses to Switzerland

Portugal overtook Spain in Group B of the first division of the Nations League and has the best starting position for a place in the semi-finals. National coach Fernando Santos’ team beat the Czech Republic 4-0 in Prague. On the other hand, Spain surprised Switzerland in Zaragoza and lost 2-1.

The Portuguese has 10 points from five games, and Spain at 8. The two superpowers will play their final group match to win the group on September 27.

Cristiano Ronaldo was remarkably present with the Portuguese. He developed a nosebleed early in the game after colliding with goalkeeper Thomas Valick, but was able to carry on after treatment and wear a clean shirt. Right-back Diogo Dalot became the Portuguese champion. He scored the first and third goal. 0-3 was a beautiful goal. He rolled the ball into the left corner with his left foot.

Ronaldo gave the Czech Republic the opportunity to return to the match in added time from the first half. The striker raised his hand and inflicted a penalty. Patrick Schick hit the ball over the crossbar from a distance of 11 metres. Ronaldo was also on a 0-4 basis. The ball was headed from a corner kick to Diogo Jota, who turned it around.

Spain quickly backed away from Switzerland at home after defender Manuel Akanji scored a corner kick with a powerful header. The Spanish avant-garde, with Ferran Torres, Marco Asensio and Pablo Sarabia, did not come alone. And in the second half, the national team Luis Enrique drew the line through a goal from Jordi Alba. The goal did not turn around because after 4 minutes the goal was 1-2 with the goal of Brill Empolo.
