Spain finally lost the final of the Olympic Games in extra time, after playing a game with ups and downs.
Scoring the Spanish players is a complicated task as the selection of Luis de la Fuente had two faces. One, in the horrible first half, especially from behind, where there were errors and the defensive line was not able to overcome the pressure from Brazil and the other, in the second half, in which the changes favored the verticality of the team, which allowed them to find the goal.
Unai Simon (8): He committed a highly questionable penalty, but then made several saving saves, one in a heads-up with Richarlison in which he repelled the shot with his foot.
Oscar Gil (7): Of the little salvageable in the Spanish defense, he was good at the cut and in helping the centrals when they went out of position.
Eric Garcia (5): He was not very successful taking the ball played and came under pressure in a crazy way and without defensive order. It is green.
Pau Torres (4): He made a bad game. Brazil’s goal is caused by an error in his clearance. He was nervous and failed, in addition, he could not get the ball played correctly.
Cucurella (5): He was clumsy with the ball at his feet and did little defensively. In the second half he improved but did not stand out too much.
Zubimendi (5): He stole some balls, but was missing in the construction of the game.
Merino (5): He could not become owner of the midfield as we are used to, so he was substituted at the beginning of the second half.
Pedri (6): He was visibly tired, so he could not participate much in the plays, which prevented Spain from creating danger thanks to his magic to find the forwards.
Asensio (4): He did not participate in the game, nor did he help the team in defensive tasks, which led to his replacement at the beginning of the second half.
Dani Olmo (7): He was the most active player from the top but he was not very successful. Even so, he tried at all times to overflow, go down to receive and look for his companions.
Oyarzábal (8): He scored a great goal and was at all times looking for unchecks and pressing to generate chances.
Soler (8): He went out on the field at halftime and revolutionized the game with his mobility. The Valencia player assisted in the construction of the game and made successful breakthroughs. One of them allowed him to assist the tying goal.
Bryan Gil (7): He helped give another face to the team by leaving at the beginning of the second half. He overflowed, assisted and was about to score with a shot from outside the box that hit the crossbar.
Miranda (6): He came out in extra time to give Cucurella rest and he tried until the end with centers.
Vallejo (4): Your change was a mistake. The defender is not a winger and the team paid for it in a play in which Malcom easily beat him and scored the winning goal.
Rafa Mir (5): Maybe he should have left before, but even so in the minutes he played he could not be noticed, although he tried.
