Match Highlights

Quotes

"We tried to attack down the wings as much as possible. I think we controlled the game and created the better chances, but we couldn’t maintain that level of intensity and, more importantly, we failed to take the chances we created. And in a tournament like this one, you pay the price for mistakes like that."
Ignacio Quereda, Spain coach
