Pablo Sarabia has been in charge of taking the penalty that has allowed the Spanish team to take advantage in their duel against Greece. The Sporting de Portugal forward has not failed from the fatal point, something that has not happened since September 2020.
That is what Spain had without scoring a penalty in a game, or what is the same, it had been failing its last 5 maximum penalties, except for the penalty shootouts that they had to play against Switzerland and Italy in the European Championship.
On September 6, 2020, against Ukraine, Sergio Ramos scored Spain’s last penalty. Back in November, he missed two in one go against Switzerland, starting a negative streak that has continued to this day.
After the Sevillian, Abel Ruiz failed in the atypical friendly against Lithuania. That duel of preparation for the Eurocopa was disputed with the members of the Sub-21 after registering the positive one of Sergio Busquets in the concentration of the absolute one.
Already in the Euro, Gerard Moreno had an opportunity against Poland, but like his teammates he lacked success. The last to follow the same path was Álvaro Morata, against Slovakia.
