But credit to Romania which did not drop their heads & lifted in their pressure looking to pull the result back. Romanian Coach Cosmin Costa began moving the bench bring on ANDONE who reacted & headed the Romanian goal in the 59th min. From here Romania put Spain onto the back foot with pressure & more aggression.

0 – 1 (29 ‘) (P.) Sergio Ramos
