Spain-Portugal: Ricardo Horta equalized late for the visitors… after Álvaro Morata’s first-half goal put Luis Enrique’s men in the Nations League opener.
The Nations League champions have regained their level and it’s the substitute who has the goal. Cancelo played a brilliant through ball and Horta snatched the ball before calmly slipping it past Simon.
Northern Ireland also plays in the Nations League tonight. They are currently at home against Greece, down 10 points. Anastasios Bakasetas scored the only goal of the game so far just before half-time.
This game started quietly but got an electric shock. thanks above all to the daring portrayal of Gavi, the young Barcelona player who continues to dazzle.
He was key to Álvaro Morata’s original goal of attacking Portugal and a defensive pass to Torres who found the striker and gave him an easy touch. If you’re wondering how a 17-year-old starts for Spain, you might stop wondering.
Portugal looked decent in attack as Leao landed a shot that went over the bar. Perhaps introducing Ronaldo at half-time could give them a boost? I’m not the manager but I could help.
