The Sub-21 does not relax in Ireland

MADRID, June 3. (.) –

The Spanish Under-21 team added a new victory this Friday in the qualifying phase for the European of next year’s category of Romania and Georgia after overwhelming Northern Ireland 0-6, thanks to a great second half.

Luis de la Fuente’s team went to the town of Larne with their homework done, but despite that lack of ‘demand’ and the current stretch of the season, they left a very good image in the 90 minutes, although five of their goals came after the break.

And the result could have been final in the first 45 minutes if the aim had been even more refined because the ‘Rojita’ came to crash four balls into the posts, three of them through Rodrigo Riquelme, one of the most prominent, and the other through Abel Ruiz.

Precisely, it was the Portuguese Sporting de Braga striker who opened the scoring and confirmed the visitor’s dominance after 20 minutes with a great header ahead of the local defense to a pass from Betis Juan Miranda. The British, outclassed in all facets, hardly had any chances, although Arnau Tenas had a good intervention at the start of the game.

After passing through the locker room, Spain was unleashed and this time it did find the way of the goal to correspond to its dominance. Bryan Gil gave peace of mind as soon as the match resumed and the Barbate winger signed his double at the hour of play to sentence a game in which Jon Ander Olasategui and Adrià Bernabè debuted.

Shortly after, Miranda also found the prize for his good game with the 0-4, as did Riquelme who this time avoided the wood to make the ‘little hand’. The set was closed by the other side, Víctor Gómez, while Arnau Tenas still had time to make another great save and avoid the goal of Irish honor. Now, Spain will seek this Tuesday to close with full victories their qualifying phase in the visit to Melilla de Malta.
