The Spanish population will be proud of the performance of their national team, which was able to change marches perfectly according to the game situation. In the second half, The Red produced a defensive show to counter the consistent danger from France. Spain will now await either England or the Netherlands in Berlin for the UEFA Euro 2024 final.

Lamine Yamal produces yet another moment of magic

The European Championship in Germany witnessed the rise of a once-in-a-generation player, Lamine Yamal. The soon-to-be 17-year-old has risen through the ranks at FC Barcelona. Yamal established himself as a regular starter for the Catalan club last season and hasn’t looked back since. France was the last victim of the genius of the teenager.

At a time when Spain looked out of sorts dealing with the French threat, Yamal took matters into his own hands and sent a lovely curling shot beyond the reach of Mike Maignan in the 21ˢᵗ minute. He was crucial for the second goal as well, with the intelligence to drift inside and allow Jesus Navas to deliver the cross. The Barcelona prodigy is on course to be crowned the Young Player of the Tournament.

Didier Deschamps’ selections are proving costly for France

France was considered the favorite going into the semi-finals considering the talent in their ranks as well as the most important absentees in the Spanish squad. However, some bizarre personnel choices by Didier Deschamps did not allow it Les Bleus to stamp their authority on the game. The midfield was the area most affected by the decisions of the French coach, resulting in Spain easily dominating the center of the park. “Spain dominated better, we were not a cautious team”Deschamps was quick to admit his side’s mistakes after the game.

Eduardo Camavinga received a surprise drop to the bench after his brilliance against Portugal in the quarters and looked a real handful coming off the bench against Spain. Ousmane Dembele was again ineffective on the right wing and was substituted just 20 minutes from the end of regulation time. These tactical blunders ultimately proved to be the reason for France’s elimination.
