France defeated Spain in the League of Nations final: goal video
Team France & # 8212; the second winner of the League of Nations Cup in history.
The French in the final were able to beat Spain, losing in the course of the meeting & # 8212; 2: 1, Chronicle.info reports with reference to RBC.
The first half and the beginning of the second half, the teams spent more in the tactical struggle without any special moments. But everything came to life in the middle of the second 45-minute, giving out killer minutes.
So, in the 64th minute France exploded. Players & # 171; le bleu & # 187; organized a quick attack, which was completed by Theo Hernandez, but his blow was taken over by the crossbar. The Spaniards immediately responded with a counterattack, which ended in a goal. Busquets threw on Oyarsabal, whom Upamecano did not keep track of, and he shot tightly with the bottom into the far corner of Lloris's goal & # 8212; 1: 0.
The Spaniards did not succeed in celebrating for a long time, because immediately after the draw from the center of the field, the French equalized the score. Mbappe passed to Benzema, who from the corner of the penalty area of the Spaniards threw the ball along a crazy trajectory the ball behind the collar of Simon & # 8212; 1: 1.
After that, the teams began to act more actively in the attack, but everything seemed to be heading for overtime. But in the 80th minute Mbappe, after a long pass behind the backs of the Spanish defenders, went one-on-one with Simon and sent the ball into the net. The Spaniards immediately began to signal that the Frenchman was flagged offside, and it seemed so from replays, but VAR did not change the referee's decision & # 8212; a goal and 2: 1 in favor of France.
The Spaniards could have escaped, but after the blows of Oyarzabal and Pino, the French goalkeeper Lloris saved his team.
As a result, France, which, by the way, is the reigning world champion, became the second winner of the League of Nations Cup. For the first time, Portugal won the trophy in 2019. Previously, Italy in the match for & # 171; bronze & # 187; beat Belgium 2: 1.
