In Milan, Italy is looking for more trophies, while Spain is looking for revenge after losing a penalty in the euro 2020 semi-final.

Barcelona youngster Garvey started, making the 17-year-old the youngest player in Spain’s debut. Garvey, who made his debut for Barcelona only a month ago, broke the national team record set by angel zubita in 1936.

The game was held at the San Siro stadium, with 37000 spectators full and full of passion. The rhythm of the game was very high at the beginning, and both sides had a chance.

Federico chiesa was the first to test the goalkeeper. Spain’s unesimon saved his shot from a distance in the fifth minute, and then saved Italian central defender bastonri.

In the 13th quarter, bastonry made a decisive cover at the other end to stop Mikel’s attack on the left wing.

Spain has been marking the left. In the 17th minute, oyalzabar passed from the left. Torres kicked the ball into the lower right corner and Spain scored.

Spain almost immediately doubled its lead. Gianluigi donnaruma caught Marcos Alonso’s shot, the ball flew out of his hand and landed on the left post. Then Bonucci successfully blocked the rebound out of the goal line.

This is a rare mistake by the Italian goalkeeper, who was selected as the best player in the 2020 European Cup. But at the San Siro, his every touch was booed loudly by most Italian fans. San Siro is also the home of AC Milan. Donaruma transferred to Paris Saint Germain on a free transfer during the off-season.

Italy had a chance to equalize the score. The best chance appeared in the 10 minutes after the end of the first half. First, Federico bernardsky’s shot was blocked by sim ó n, and then the defenceless Lorenzo insigne missed Emerson’s Cross.

Italy’s chance was broken before halftime, and Bonucci was shown a second yellow card for jumping with his elbow on Busquets. The captain of the Italian team received his first yellow card because he disagreed when the game lasted half an hour.

Spain doubled their lead at half-time with a very similar goal. This time, Torres headed the cross of ojar zabar from the left back to the lower left corner of the goal.

Despite one injury, Italy continued to exert pressure and chiesa hit the right post after the Juventus striker ran well. The offside flag has been raised, but it will be a difficult decision.

Ojar zabar almost scored a goal in the 63rd minute, but Pino’s Cross headed out of the post.

Donaruma also saved Alonso’s low shot and Italy pulled back a goal in the last seven minutes. Chiesa rushed to the free throw area from his own half to catch Simon, then selflessly passed the ball to Pellegrini and hit the empty goal.
