The Czechs had a dream start, because after five minutes the 1-0 was on the scoreboard. On a pass from Jan Kuchta, Jakub Pesek was able to tap in for an empty goal. On the side of Spain, the VAR was looked at en masse, but it saw no reason to reject the goal.
Spain came alongside on the stroke of half-time. It was 17-year-old Pablo Gavi who scored the equalizer. He is now the youngest player ever to score a goal for the national team.
Jakub Pesek and Jan Kuchta celebrate the goal.
After the break Marco Asensio was very close to a lead for the Spaniards, but he hit the post hard. On the other hand, it was more than twenty minutes before time. Vaclav Cerny sent Kuchta towards the Spanish goalkeeper with a wonderful pass and he finished fantastically: 2-1.
The Czech Republic seemed to have the loot, but just before time Martinez saved a point for the Spaniards: 2-2.
Norway win again in away match
Norway has booked its second win in the Nations League B and again in an away game. After Serbia (0-1) Sweden was defeated in Solna on Sunday evening: 1-2. Both Norwegian goals came, almost naturally, in the name of Erling Haaland. He scored the first from the penalty spot. In stoppage time, young Manchester United striker Anthony Elanga did something back.
Feyenoord player Marcus Pedersen had a starting spot in the Norwegian squad. His Rotterdam teammate Fredrik Aursnes was missing.
Serbia took revenge in Belgrade at the expense of Slovenia: 4-1. Ajax player Dusan Tadic distinguished himself with two assists. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Nemanja Radonjic took advantage of that preparatory work. The other goals were scored by Aleksandar Mitrovic and Luka Jovic. Petar Stojanovic scored against on behalf of the Slovenians. That meant temporarily the 1-1.
