UEFA Nations League: Czech Republic 2-2 Spain

Scorer: Peshke 4, Kuchta 66 ′; Cow 45 + 3, Martinez 90

The home side took an amazing lead with just four minutes left on the clock when Jacob Pesek’s team’s offensive trio easily beat Spain’s offside trap to easily score from close range into the net.

But after the hosts failed to clear the line, Spain equalized just moments before half-time with a pleasing finishing curl in the far corner from the right side of the penalty area.

With that goal, he became the youngest competitive goal scorer in La Rosa history, breaking the record set by club-mate Ansu Fatir just one week apart.

However, the Czech Republic regained the lead in the 66th minute when Jan Kuchta scored with a delightful chip but again benefited from a poorly-established high Spanish defensive line, partly aided by Eric Garcia’s interception.

But members of Luis Enrique fled with a point in injury time when Marco Asensio’s delivery was for part of the loot led by Martinez.

Portugal vs. Switzerland

Scorer: Carvalho 15 ′, Ronaldo 35 ′, 39 ′, Cancello 68.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick was blocked by William Carvalho 15 minutes later when he responded quickly from four yards out.

But the Manchester United man will not be denied for long, and after working hard to win the ball from clubmate Bruno Fernandez, he doubled his side’s lead, allowing Ronaldo to cut the ball back home.

Joao Cancello tapped in for a second quick four minutes for the striker after some generous Swiss defense before making four after the break, when he tactically gave a nutmeg to goalkeeper Gregor Kobel at the edge of his area after he came quite far ahead and then quietly. Rolled into empty mesh.
