Spain takes full advantage of Sweden’s points loss in the World Cup preliminary round | UEFA World Cup 2022 Qualifiers

Since Spain lost to Sweden in early September, they have been late in Group B. With two days left and two points behind in the European World Cup qualifying round, time was running out against La Roja.

But the Swedish leader was shot in the foot earlier in the evening after suffering a painful defeat in Georgia. With its victory in Greece, Spain could take the lead from the leader.

Visitors also started well. Just half an hour ago, Spain got a penalty, an opportunity that Sarabia did not miss. The sons of coach Luis Enrique, who allowed the Espanyol striker de Tomas to make his debut, had the upper hand, but he often lacked the last pass.

Greece had to win if it still wanted a chance to qualify for the World Cup. The Greeks realized this and went looking for points after the break. Ten minutes before the end, Tzavilas had another great chance, but I saw him miss.

The score remained on the board, pushing Spain over Sweden to the top of Group B, with Greece eliminated. On Sunday, La Roja can fight amongst themselves in a final duel with the Swedes who can book his tickets to Qatar.
