The Netherlands lost 0-1 to Mexico and suffered a two-game losing streak. De Boer also ushered in the opening goal of coaching the Orange. In addition to these events, another high-profile match for the national team is Spain vs Portugal's Iberia Derby.
There has never been a lack of stories between Spain and Portugal on the Iberian Peninsula. In history, they jointly opened the era of great navigation. In the era of great navigation, the two countries were in competition with each other.
Today, the glory of the great nautical era has gone, and their competition in the field of cooperation has turned to the most popular collective project in the Iberian Peninsula-football.
Competition on the field
There has never been a lack of competition between Portuguese and Spanish football. The competition between them also left many classic memories.
In the 2004 European Cup, Nuno Gomez's goal helped Portugal beat Spain 1-0. This defeat directly caused the Matadors to stop the group stage.
In the 2008 European Cup, the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Cup, Spain won the final championship and opened the Spanish red dynasty. In the two events (1/8 finals of the 2010 World Cup and the semi-finals of the 2012 European Cup), Spain eliminated Portugal.
(2010 World Cup 1/8 finals, Spain 1-0 Portugal)
In the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the two teams were once again in the same group. The game was inextricably played, and finally shook hands 3-3.
Having said the history, let's take a look at this game together. In this game, Portugal and Spain have outstanding performances.
Portugal and Spain lined up 433 formations.
1-patricio / 20-cancello, 3-pepe (46'4-dias), 6-ruben-semedo, 5-guerrero (68'2-semedo) / 18 Nevis, 8-mutinio (46'14-carvalho), 16 Sanchez / 7-c (72'23-felix), 9-andre-silva (46'10-bernardo-silva), 17-trinkon (79'21-jota)

Obviously, the goals of both sides are very clear, focusing on youth, and veterans to drive young players. In this game, the two sides can be described as offensive and defensive. In Portugal, the team's defender Wundt tested positive for nucleic acid and needs to be isolated. Portugal had to use Ruben Dias and Pepe to partner the central defender. This side has also become a focus area for the Spaniards.
Spain also started the game against the goal, creating opportunities repeatedly, but helplessly, the Portuguese goalkeeper Patricio performed even better, and he did his best to keep the goal.
After the Portuguese side withstood Spain's fierce offensive, it gradually showed its advantage in the midfield and attacked Spain's defense. They also had many chances to rewrite the score, but unfortunately the goal post became the protagonist of the game. Because the crossbar and goal post blocked Ronaldo's goals and assists.
In the 52nd minute of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo swayed after receiving a pass from his teammate, and then shot with his left foot, but the ball hit the crossbar.
After that, Ronaldo crossed Renato Sanchez and was also turned away by the beam. It can be said that Portugal is within easy reach of scoring.
Judging from this game, Spain and Portugal performed well enough. They need to improve to prepare for the next UEFA Europa League game. Portugal's next opponents include France and Sweden, especially France, which will be the most difficult bone to gnaw on Portugal's way forward. Spain will have to play against Switzerland and Ukraine, especially Switzerland. Although they have few big names, they still have the strength to cause problems for the strong team by relying on a strong overall. Therefore, Spain has a lot to do.
After the running-in of this game, I hope that Spain and Portugal can perform well in the next UEFA Europa League game.
