The agonizing triumph of the Spanish Olympic team against Ivory Coast (5-2), left without a doubt a absolute protagonist: Rafa Mir. The forward of the Wolverhampton scored the goal in the last minute that forced the extension and in it he finished off La Rojita’s win with a double in the final stretch.
In these first four games, we have only seen the Murcian player participate coming off the bench. He played 22 minutes against Egypt, 13 against Australia, 16 against Argentina and 30 against Ivory Coast. In fact, it was Luis De la Fuente’s resource to desperately looking for the tie… and he answered perfectly.
With the incredible hat-trick that he achieved yesterday, Mir has earned the title in Tuesday’s game against Japan. The truth is he has only scored almost the same goals than the rest of the team, with the difference that they have achieved them in just 81 minutes. An atrocity,
The selection had cost enough to mark in the first three games (2 goals), but put Rafa Mir as headline seems a great solution. Not surprisingly, he has come to these games rested and after having performed the best season of his life at 24 years old. He has played the 38 days with him Huesca and has scored 13 goals, although he could not avoid the descent of the team.
In short, the alignment against hosts must be Mir and 10 more. In the end it is about finding the players who they are in better shape, and De la Fuente has shown that he is a technician who likes to rotate. Today it seems that there is no one in the national team that is better than mir. With him you have to look for a pass to the final, and so on secure a medal.
