It try in the first half, but his shot was spat out by the crossbar. He tried it again in the second, but his essay went above the wood. And on the third, when the 0-0 seemed almost immovable despite the 70% possession that the Red signed, the fortune. A perfect center of Framework
Asensio from the right he headed it to the back of the net to give Spain a historic triumph and to sign a goal no less legendary: 21 years ago the last victory and the last goal of the Red in a Games.
Oyarzabal, with the captain’s armband, has been erected this Sunday in the savior of the national team. The draw did not leave out De la Fuente’s men, but it exposed them too much for the last day.
Now, with that triumphant so much, they a tie is enough against Argentina to get into rooms, although it will be necessary to see if as first or second.

And we have to do it now, on Wednesday against Argentina.
At stake are some quarter finals. And if history has been made today by winning and scoring a goal in some Games 21 years later, we must continue writing it, if possible, until the final chapter. The one that Spain signed in the Games of Barcelona-1992.
