The Spanish national team, led by the Azulgrana Marc Gual, managed to win its third match in the European Championship by a devastating 21-1 margin. At the break, Spain already had a 9-1 lead. In the second half, the Spanish national team upped the tempo in an attempt to solidify their overall goal-average and secure the top spot of the group.

The flow of goals was constant throughout the match. Despite Spain’s dominance, however, England were able to do what neither Germany nor Italy could, score a goal against Spain. England looked good after their goal, but they went to the break with a 9-1 on the scoreboard. At the start of the second half, Spain sent out its reserve players, like Enric Torner and Toni Pérez. The Azulgrana Marc Gual played from the start, just as he did in Spain’s first two matches, and he scored two goals.
