Football: France wins the Nations League at the expense of Spain (2-1)

2021 Nations League final won by the France team against Spain (2-1).

France won the 2nd edition of the new League of Nations after Portugal in 2019. After two stunning matches (in the semi and final), the Deschamps gang gleaned a new trophy there.

But to win this trophy, it will once again have to wait for France to be led. Spain, which has its accustomed possession of the ball and made the French run, did not provide a huge opportunity until the 64th and the cross strike from Oyarzabal. On a counter-attack, after a shot from Hernandez T. on the crossbar.

But France has got into the habit of waiting to be led to the score to start playing. And it took Benzema only 2 minutes to equalize with a superb curled shot (66th). MBappé in an offside position but put onside by the Spanish defender who touched the ball crucified the Iberians by winning his face to face with Unai Simon (80th).

Spain pushed hard the last ten minutes, but Lloris, little used until then, remained vigilant and made two good saves to keep the advantage of the France team.
