Pablo Sarabia: His midfielder position behind the forwards was surprising. He played his role to perfection, falling to the band when he had to and always creating danger because he occupies the spaces where the goal is reached wonderfully. He left his place to Bryan Gil in the 74th minute.

Ferran Torres: The great star of this Selection. He formed a pair of forwards with Oyarzabal and fell to the band when he had to and looked for the shot in the middle when it was necessary. The Valencian forward has a goal and he showed it when Spain needed it. The first got him with the tibia and the second with a tremendous headbutt. Too bad he had to go injured because he was aiming for the hat trick.

Oyarzabal: It does everything right. Overflows, combines, unchecks, falls to the band. But he lacked a goal. He had chances to score and had no fortune. Playing like this, the Guipuzcoan will score goals with Spain.
