Spain in charge in Euro qualifying quest after beating Sweden 3-0

Euro 2020 qualifying: Spain 3-0 Sweden

Spain made it four wins out of four and took control of their Euro 2020 qualifying group by beating closest rivals Sweden 3-0 on Monday after overpowering the visitors in the second half with two penalties and a late strike from Mikel Oyarzabal.

"It's a great result in a hard match against a tough opponent", Ramos said.

"This is a step towards the Euros".

Ramos reached 20 goals with the national team, with seven coming since last year's World Cup.

Speaking to reporters after Spain moved five points clear in Group F, Chelsea keeper Kepa told reporters: "I'm going to continue working as I have until now, doing my best at my club to keep the confidence of the coach".

Spain struggled to break down a determined Sweden defense at the Santiago Bernabeu until Ramos struck in the 64th minute after Sebastian Larsson blocked Marco Asensio's cross with his hand.

Luis Enrique has been absent from matches since missing Spain's win over Malta in March due to a family emergency and he was away from the bench again, leaving his assistant Robert Moreno in charge.

The captain was honored for the record before the match. When you don't even ask and he gives you the ball, it's twice as nice.

Earning $127 million, Lionel Messi tops Forbes list of highest paid athletes
The Barcelona megastar has pocketed a whopping £99.8 million the past year, while the Juventus forward has earned £85.6 million. This is the first time that footballers have clinched the top three spots since Forbes began tracking athlete earnings in 1990.

Oyarzabal closed the scoring with a shot from inside the area in the 87th for his first global goal.

Since the aforementioned World Cup in Russia, Sweden have enjoyed a more stable and successful period of results under manager Janne Andersson as the visitors have suffered just 3 defeats from their subsequent 11 matches played in all competitions which were losses to Austria, Turkey and Finland, but they've also collected some solid wins too during this period.

In the early stages of the second half, Isco met an outswinging corner with a stunning volley that whistled just over the bar.

Sweden lost forward Viktor Claesson because of an injury in the first half.

Despite Luis Enrique's absence, he has not been entirely detached from the team and the selections have been decided by him.

"Of course, we are in search of a fixed group, but it would not be good to have one [starting] team".

Spain are obvious favourites but the price has been hammered in the markets, so backing Sweden with the +2 asian handicap looks the best play here.
