In the Nations-League top match against England, Spain’s team boss Luis Enrique again relies on Dortmund-Joker Paco Alcacer. Iceland threatens to relegate Switzerland prematurely.
Sevilla – Spain can advance today in Sevilla with a home success over the World Cup fourth England to the first group winner of the Nations League. After a 2-1 win on the island and a 6-0 home triumph over runners-up Croatia, the Iberians lead with a maximum of six points. England and Croatia, on the other hand, have only one point after the 0-0 win on Friday evening in Rijeka.
Spain striker Paco Alcacer has recently been a scorer and will continue his series against the English. For his club Borussia Dortmund, the 25-year-old scored six Joker goals in less than 100 minutes, then celebrated his return to the national team, where he promptly scored twice again and let his team cheer. “It’s a little bit of everything: luck, self-confidence, the coach’s confidence, stakes and above all the daily work,” Alcacer commented on his current success story.
“What we currently see of him is a miracle”.
Luis Enrique is enthusiastic about his goalgetter. “Alcacer is currently a huge player because he is in a phase that players rarely reach,” said the Spanish coach, who has played as a professional for many years for the top clubs Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Although Diego Costa scored three goals in four games at the World Cup in Russia, the Spaniards missed a striker like Alcacer in the middle of their midst. “What we see of him at the moment is a miracle,” the team boss praised.
While the Spaniards are back on track after the last 16 in Russia, England, like Croatia, are back on track after the celebrated World Cup semi-final. The “Three Lions” also have to worry about remaining in the top category. The goalless draw in the “ghost game” in Croatia was recently also an expression of the blatant weakness of England’s strikers at the end.
“We’d be more worried if we weren’t going to play out these chances,” Southgate put into perspective. But the fact is that in the four games since the semi-final in Russia, only two goals have been scored. If Spain are not defeated, the final in the Nations League and thus the next title dream is over. Karamba Casino features live-stream card and table games, as well as online slots gaming.
A decision can also be made in Reykjavik on Monday evening. Should the Icelanders not win their home game against Switzerland, they would be prematurely relegated to the top league, after they had slipped into a 6-0 debacle at the opening match in St. Gallen and three days later lost 3-0 in front of their own audience against Belgium, third at the World Cup.
