71′ GOOOOOOALL! AND PAU TORRES IS INVOLVED. Wow , there is nothing Spain cannot do at the moment. Laporte nods a free-kick after the subs and it is turned on Torres at far post. Dubravka makes the save but the ball rolls into the net after bouncing off Kucka

JUN 23, 2021 10:43 PM IST
52′ A couple of silly fouls in midfield from Slovakia haven’t helped them to improve their build-up, and Spain still look comfortable riding out that few minutes of pressure from their opponents.
JUN 23, 2021 10:37 PM IST
Lobotka and Duris come on for Duda and Hromada.
JUN 23, 2021 10:36 PM IST
JUN 23, 2021 10:21 PM IST
HALFTIME! An entertaining first half comes to an end. Spain should get the job done comfortably from here.
JUN 23, 2021 10:19 PM IST
45+3′ GOOOOALL! Laporte scores in his first month for Spain. From France to Spain, Laporte may have secured a R16 berth for his new team. Coming to the goal, the corner is half-cleared by the Slovakia players. The ball is put back into the box by Pedri. It was met by Moreno, who lifts it into the spot where Laporte finds the back of the net with a looping header.
JUN 23, 2021 10:18 PM IST
45+2′ GREAT BLOCK. Sarabia, from the left, floats in a great delivery into the box near the spot. He seeks Morata but Skriniar gets in the way with a clearing header

Slovakia vs Spain UEFA Euro 2020
45′ WIDE! Koke has a go from distance. Fair play to him. Even if he saves it, maybe Dubravka would chuck it in anyway. It’s just wide of the far post from 25, maybe 30 yards.
JUN 23, 2021 10:15 PM IST
4 added minutes to a very interesting first half.
JUN 23, 2021 10:08 PM IST
36′ SAVED BY THE FLAG! Finally Slovakia have a shot Hromanda’s ball from deep finds Duda, who takes a crack at goal from 20 yards outs. He misses but must have been relieved to see the flag go up.
JUN 23, 2021 10:01 PM IST
30′ GOOOOOOALLL! IT’S AN OWN GOAL FROM DUBRAVKA. Oh, Boy! What a disaster for Slovakia. Spain get lucky. Coming to the goal, Sarabia walks into the box and shoots. The ball hits the crossbar and balloons in the air. Dubravka looks to punch the ball over the bar but ends up smashing it, like a volleyball, into his own net.
JUN 23, 2021 09:55 PM IST
24′ SAVE! Dubravka keeping his team afloat single-handedly. After a long build-up, Morata manages to cut in to the edge of the box. He then rifles the bal goalwards only to be denied by Duvravka.
JUN 23, 2021 09:53 PM IST
20′ AND AGAIN! These two minutes are a snapshot Spain’s campaign so far. Create, create, miss. Azpilicueta cuts inside off the right and curls one on his left into the middle. It’s glanced on by the faintest of Morata touches and beats Pedri at the back post.
JUN 23, 2021 09:51 PM IST
19′ WHAT A CHANCE! Pedri, from the left flank, picks out the incoming Sarabia with a peach of a dink in the box. Yet, Sarabia fails to convert
JUN 23, 2021 09:46 PM IST
Spain, unsurprisingly, start with possession. They should have scored from the spot.
JUN 23, 2021 09:42 PM IST
11′ SAVEEDD! Dubravka makes a stunning save. Guesses the right direction, goes to his right and Morata misses another chance.
JUN 23, 2021 09:41 PM IST
11′ PENALTY GIVEN!!! Spain have a penalty
JUN 23, 2021 09:40 PM IST

Can Busquets make a difference?
Right then. We are less than 15 minutes away from kickoff. Can Busquets inspire a Spain comeback?
JUN 23, 2021 09:12 PM IST
Enrique told reporters: “Slovakia make it very hard to score against them, and a draw would also take them through. They’re very difficult to break down through the central channel because they crowd that area with lots of players. This match is going to be trickier than most people expect.
“We have had nothing but complications in our first two matches and we are going to be facing very similar complications again. But we’re ready.”
