After a long time, the Euro 2020 Qualifiers are back! Maybe it’s a bit frustrating not to have domestic football for almost 2 weeks, but at least we can still watch some good football! Fort the 5th round of the Euro qualifiers, the Spaniards traveled to Bucharest, Romanian capital to face Romania on Thursday. It wasn’t really an exciting game, but Spain confirmed their favoritism and played enough to beat Romania 2-1. Sergio Ramos and Paco Alcacer scored for the visitors, as Andone scored for Romania.

With the result, the Spanish team maintains the 100% success in the competition and leads group F with 15 points in five games. On the other hand, Romania fell to fourth place with just seven points added.

The game started with a surprise amongst the starters, as the once so-called “Best goalkeeper in the World” by so many – including me -, David De Gea was benched for the first time for Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga. After so many poor performances, and a tragic World Cup last year, we could have expected that this was coming for the Man United keeper. And to make things worse for him, Kepa was pretty decent, to be honest.

As the game started, it took 29 minutes for Spain to open the scoring. It came through Dani Ceballos, as he drew a penalty for the Spaniards. Sergio Ramos was the taker and slotted home from the spot. 0-1 Spain. With the goal, the Real Madrid defender became the 10th top scorer of the Spanish national team with 21 goals scored.

Spain got back to the nets only in the second half. On 47 minutes, following a good team-move, Ceballos picked Alba out down the right, as the Barcelona defender assisted Dortmund’s Alcacer, who found the back of the net. 0-2 Spain.

The game seemed to be under control for the Spaniards, but Romania managed to reduce the gap after 59 minutes, at the only chance of danger they had in the game so far. Andone was smart enough to anticipate Sergio Ramos and to head home to the bottom of the goal. 1-2.

On 78 minutes, Llorente was sent off, as Romania threw themselves at Spain. They had a few good chances to score and just didn’t because of Kepa, who shone and saved Puscas’ finishes to secure the Spanish victory.
