SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: MACEDONIA 0 SPAIN 1 | EURO 2016 GROUP C RESULT

MACEDONIA 0 SPAIN 1 | EURO 2016 GROUP C RESULT

Spain travelled to meet last placed on Group C Macedonia to finish with a 0 - 1 victory that cost the current European Champions. Thanks to an early (perhaps accidental) goal Spain managed the three points but showed little more as Macedonia placed a defensive wall which neutralized thereafter all the Spanish attempts.

The starting 11 Spanish Football Team tonight:

De Gea; Carvajal, Pique, Ramos, Bernat; Busquets, Cazorla (Koke), Isco (Iniesta); Mata, Silva & Diego Costa (Paco Alcacer),

up to 6 changes from the last game against Slovakiallast Saturday.

The winner came early in the 5th min when Juan Mata crossed but managed to "unwillingly" cause the ball to deviate & beat a surprised Macedonia goalkeeper at his far post. From here onwards Spain controlled the ball but was ineffective in breaking the Macedonian defensive lines.

Frustrating for the visitors with the changes in the 2ยบ half introduced by Spanish Coach Del Bosque not changing things upfront. Diego Costa who started was again scoreless & not effective which is causing some to doubt if he is the goal scoring answer. 

Said all this & looking at it all with pragmatism a win is a win & more importantly gains another 3 points which maintains Spain on top of Group C. However, not a night to brag about spectacular Football.

Next games - Luxembourg & Ukraine
