This Euro Cup has brought us bad matches, cautious teams, and a fair amount of boredom. A few matches have been the exception, including all of Spain’s, the news of the championship for its daring play and the differential profile of its two wingers. France was the dominant team in Europe in recent years, but deserved criticism for its lack of daring play, with priority given to physicality and prudence over class and offensive verve, despite having excellent attacking players. Spain had to win for that reason: to prove Deschamps wrong.

Great game again. Exquisite attacking moments and resistance against the French surge when, really forced, Deschamps let go of his belt and ended up attacking us with Mbappé, Griezmann, Giroud and Barcola. They pressed, and the game seemed long for our team because France’s physical power was becoming more difficult to overcome by the minute. Once again, De la Fuente’s changes helped. The team knew how to group together and, at the most critical moment, rest with the ball, prolonging possession to make time work in our favour and against France’s nerves, forced to rush their attacks.

But the man of the day was Lamine, who will still be 16 on Saturday. Spain, who had started very well, suffered three quick attacks from Mbappé and in one of them Kolo Muani headed well a great cross from the star, who was always a threat but never did anything really serious. A period of confusion followed, almost panic set in, and Lamine resolved it with his fabulous goal, which stopped France’s euphoria in its tracks and soon found a partner in the player from Olmo, who made it 2-1. All the Spaniards played well, but Lamine’s name will remain linked to this match.
