Spain have won consecutive games and climbed to the top of the Nations League A2 subgroup thanks to a goal from Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia after the Czech Republic’s 2-0 win on Sunday.
Luis Enrique’s side beat Switzerland in two draws after the start of the season on Thursday, scoring a second win against La Rosaleda in Malaga.
Valencia midfielder Soler scored his first goal immediately after half-time, his third international goal.
And substitute Sarabia secured all three points in the 75th minute when La Roja overcame Portugal and lost 1-0 to group leaders Switzerland.
Unai Simon lost the opening of Vaclav Cerny and Jan Kuchta in 20 minutes when the guests got off to a great start.
Spain had a good chance to take the lead but home keeper Aler Mandousi saved a Marco Assension shot that went into the top corner from the right.
Shortly thereafter, Soler qualified when Spain failed to double their lead before half-time.
Simon’s long-range shot should have found the net in the 58th minute, but fell just wide.
Until then, Sarabia followed his win from Switzerland and scored three minutes after being introduced to attacking midfielder Asensio, who went home for maximum points due to low Ferran Torres.
What does it mean? Spain wins the block
After the slow start of the League of Nations campaign, Spain is now truly ready.
The second consecutive victory brought them to eight points, beating Portugal by one. However, the Czech Republic are third with four points from their first four games.
A pass on goal from the center of Soler means that no player has managed to lead the Spanish team Luis Enrique (seven Jordi Albana). He was the biggest threat here in Spain as he played more key passes (three) than any other player on the pitch.
Alvaro Morata knew he was in trouble after pulling back an opponent. The visitors’ central defense should have had no problem fending off the pass to Torrese, but Torrese’s player managed to shrug off and shot a low shot behind the keeper to give his team the lead.
Both teams will complete their campaign in September in block A2. Spain is at home in Switzerland before visiting Portugal, while the Czech Republic is at home in Portugal and then Switzerland.
