EURO 2020 Group F qualifying match between SPAIN & MALTA played in the city of Cadiz. Spain sits comfortably at the top of the group & wants to win both games, Malta & next Mondays Romania clash to stay first of Group F.

Here is a brief summary of events, goalscorers & final result.

Spain starting XI line up vs Malta:
Pau Lopez; Jesus Navas, Albiol, Ramos, Bernat; Rodri, Thiago, Cazorla; Sarabia, Gerard Moreno & Alvaro Morata

As expected with Malta last in the Group table & the least strong, Spain dominated all the match with the visitors putting up an ultra defensive line-up. There were up to 6 defenders in-line as Malta hopped to avoid a scandalous result & if lucky find a counter-attack that may have lead to a goal.

Malta held out the best they could most of the 1º st half only “halting” Spain down to two goals up to the 45th min.

However, the 2º half was a completely different game with Spain scoring another 5 goals. Two Spanish players debuted in the 2nd half; defender PAU TORRES (Villarreal) & DANI OLMO (Dynamo Zagreb) with both scoring a goal in their debut. Good match played by Cazorla (also scored) & Gerard Moreno (assisted on various occasions & scored a goal).

The final result could have been greater in favor of Spain but they missed more than a dozen goal opportunities, including a disallowed off-side & a post.

FINAL RESULT: SPAIN 7 – MALTA 0



Goalscorers:

1 – 0 (23´) Alvaro Morata
2 – 0 (41 ‘) Santi Cazorla
Pau Torres 3 – 0 (62 ‘)
4 – 0 (63 ‘) Pablo Sarabia
5 – 0 (69 ‘) Dani Olmo
6 – 0 (71 ‘) Gerard Moreno

7 – 0 (85 ‘) Jesus Navas
