Three years and a month later Brahim Diaz | played with the Spanish team u21, which he was called to lead, but his little prominence in the Real Madrid prevented him from doing so until he decided to leave on loan to Milan, and in Tórshavn (Faroe Islands), coming off the bench, scored both goals in a victory that leaves Spain only three points to achieve the pass to the European from Hungary and Slovenia.
The team led by Luis de la Fuente faced the match with the obligation to beat an a priori inferior team and with the aim of accumulating goals to gain confidence in this aspect, the great owes to a team that, with three games remaining to conclude the qualifying phase, He only needs one win to be in the tournament in which he defends the title.
He fulfilled the obligation, but not the extra to finish the perfect match. Luis Enrique said in September, when he ‘went up’ to Oscar Rodriguez, I really wanted to work with him. After a start in his new stage in the Seville In which he has not had the expected prominence, Luis de la Fuente recovered him for the U21 and showed in Tórshavn why he won the praise of the national coach.
He and Riqui Puig, whom Luis de la Fuente continues to trust, led the tempo of the game in the first half. Approach after approach with the clearest occasions starring Óscar in the first ten minutes. The first, with a good cut inside the area and a strong shot; the second, from a direct free kick, a classic in the Madrid youth squad, but both found an unexpected protagonist in the Faroe Islands goalkeeper, Zachariasen, the best of the meeting for yours.
Not two minutes passed for the man from Malaga to impose his quality and change Spain’s attack. Cut into the area and, with Niclasen grabbing him, he fired a left-handed shot that avoided under Chukwudi sticks. A notice of what would arrive three minutes later.
In the 50th minute, Brahim leaked a ball to Handful for the one-on-one with Zachariasen, who prevailed, but the rebound was picked up by Óscar to serve the ball inside the area to the extreme, who defined perfectly with the right, demonstrating his ability to play with both legs.
Spain kept tightening to the rhythm of Brahim, who had two more shots, and Antoñin, loaned by Granada to Rayo Vallecano, but again ran into the local hero, his goalkeeper. Faroe Islands, with nothing to lose, believed and went up in search of the tie. Peter knudsen, the captain and player of the highest quality, had the clearest chance with a header that came out close to the left post of Josep Martínez, who once again showed insecure overhead.
They paid for this courage and already in the second minute of the extension Brahim closed the game in which he was the protagonist with a goal with his left foot in another good shot inside the area. Three key points that leave Spain one victory away from qualifying for the European Championship that could be achieved next Tuesday in Alcorcón (Madrid) against Kazakhstan, but that do not solve the problem of the lack of forcefulness at the top.
