Spain thrash Sweden 3-0 in 2020 European Cup qualifier

Euro 2020 qualifying: Spain 3-0 Sweden

Spain have scored three times in the second half to beat Sweden 3-0 and maintain their 100 per cent record in qualifying for the 2020 European Championships, while Poland followed suit with a 4-0 win over Israel.

"It's a great result in a hard match against a tough opponent", Ramos said.

"This is a small but important step towards qualifying".

Luis Enrique has been on leave since March due to a family emergency, but Robert Moreno continues to keep the ship on course in his stead, with Serio Ramos, Alvaro Morata and Alvaro Oyarzabal scoring in the final 26 minutes to send Spain five points clear in Group F.

The onslaught resumed after the break and Spain finally got the breakthrough just past the hour, as Ramos swept home from the spot after Sebastian Larsson was adjudged to have handled a Marco Asensio cross.

Moreno revealed he and head coach Luis Enrique, who is away from the team with a personal matter, had some question over Kepa's concentration but once that was resolved, chose to give him both starts.

Fourth-placed Norway have five points following a 2-0 win away to the Faroe Islands who are bottom with no points.

The captain was honored for the record before the match.

Nadal is just two grand slams away from Federer's record
Roland Garros keeps changing its look and shape in the 21st century. "But for me, I always put more attention on the mental side". This is the 82nd title of Nadal's career. "I thank all the people who support me, my family, my team for their great support.".

Morata's penalty kick came after he was tripped by Filip Helander.

"It was a really nice touch, I didn't even ask him because he always wants to score", said Morata after Ramos gave him the ball for the second penalty.

"It's not one concrete moment when we decided it, but we started commenting the lineup a long time ago, and then when you have all the info on your hands, that's what gives you the last push to take the decision".

Oyarzabal closed the scoring with a shot from inside the area in the 87th for his first worldwide goal. "I have never played two matches in a row for Spain".

In the early stages of the second half, Isco met an outswinging corner with a stunning volley that whistled just over the bar.

"I talked to Luis Enrique on Friday, right before the game, and we chatted about it. We are happy to finish in the best way possible".

Luis Enrique has been working remotely from his home in Barcelona, receiving video feeds of practices and meeting his assistants virtually.

Spain are obvious favourites but the price has been hammered in the markets, so backing Sweden with the +2 asian handicap looks the best play here.
