FIFA Rating – 7

Since Robert Moreno took a Spain wheel, the squad won all the matches and conceded only 2 goals in 5 appearances. They confidently stand at 1st place with 100% of the win over the far away from strongest teams, however, Sweden, Romania and Norway still have chances to compete against Spanish national team. After bad results in the UEFA Nations League, they need to take back belief in their abilities and won everything they will face on their way. It’s always very interesting, how rivals of La Liga playing alongside each other in the national squad after big conflicts playing for clubs.

Having such an interesting and strong players, this team should play in the final of Euro 2020 Final, but everything now depends on Robert Moreno and his abilities to motivate this unbelievable squad. Spain built a very creative and versatile squad with absolutely different positions. Even losing points against Norway, the situation in STandings of qualification doesn’t change strongly, so they can try something new this time. Moreover, they absolutely control the possession so this also can give more opportunities to build the game as they want.
