It’s a comfortable win for Spain over the Czech Republic. Spain enjoyed a 76 per cent share of possession in this game and controlled it for the majority.

Nevertheless, the visitors were the closest to opening the deadlock early on when Kuchta and Cerny both went close.

But eventually, Spain’s control paid off: Asensio found Soler inside the box and the midfielder finished calmly.

Torres sent in a low cross, with Sarabia applying a simple finish at the back post, to ensure Spain would take a 2-0 win.
