The Spanish team jumped onto the court with a very young starting five, which led to a couple of errors in the exit of the ball as a result of nervousness, but as the minutes passed the team led by Federico Vidal settled on the court and began to take the initiative before a Paraguayan team that was waiting in their field. The increased dominance and intensity of pressure from Spain led to the relentless start of chances for Federico Vidal’s men. First a cross shot by Sergio González (min. 3) and then a volley by Adri Martínez (min. 4) that went off narrowly.

Before halfway through the first half, Raúl Campos and Francisco Solano came into play, who were the protagonists of the first goal for Spain in the 9th minute. Raúl Campos made a cross from the right side that the Cartagena pivot knew how to introduce into the goal high-heeled. Paraguay hardly created danger in the first half. The few occasions of the South American team had the stamp of the Salas brothers, Adolfo and Juan, with two distant shots, in the 11th and 14th minutes, without much danger for Jesús Herrero. With 44 seconds left before the break, Adolfo Fernández took advantage of an Adri Martínez corner kick to score the second goal, an action in which the Paraguayan goalkeeper was not very successful.

The second part began with the Spanish team very involved in the game and without showing any fissure in the face of the innocuous game of Paraguay. The best chance for Spain in the second half was once again signed by Adolfo Fernández, who crashed a left-footed shot into the cross of the Paraguayan goal. The Spanish team continued to control the game and the arrival of the third goal was a matter of minutes, and it was. Raúl Goméz scored the best goal so many matches, a play that was made in the heeled position of the pivot with a hit that entered through the left squad of Gabriel Giménez (min. 29). After the third goal, Paraguay was very touched and practically assumed defeat. With 38 seconds remaining, the fourth goal came, from Raúl Campos, who played his 100th game with Spain, from Adolfo Fernández, who had a fantastic performance.
