Everything remains to be played, therefore, despite this essential victory, obtained with a few bonus thrills. Kosovo, in fact, has obtained several opportunities, mainly on quick attacks (8th, 15th, 45th 1, 48th, 53rd), but its players displayed too much clumsiness at the finish, Rashika in particular. ‘is shown decisive against Bytyqi (80th). Spain, endowed with a huge possession most often sterile, opened the scoring following a fast and classy action: a game with three and one touch between Soler, Morata and Fornals, author of a left strike in pivot (32nd). If the goal at the end of the match by Ferran Torres, validated following the intervention of the VAR (88th), enhanced the success of Spain, he will not forget his hesitations on the defensive level.
