The morateño took the ball to the bottom of the tights after controlling it with his chest and defining with his left foot. A great goal. With 1-0 in favor, Spain turned on the Ukrainian goal in order to extend their lead.
Catela tried his luck on a couple of occasions and Artem, in the visiting box, crashed the leather on the post.

The Madrilenian scored with a hard shot and the Ukrainian collaboration in the first minute of the second round.
The final 3-0 came at 26 minutes as a result of a play started by Cecilio, who started and finished the play himself. The one from Movistar Inter sentenced Ukraine and left a great sensation in both games, as did the rest of the players who returned to the national team: Lozano, Esteban and Catela.
