She was not announced as the big favorite of Euro 2020. But Spain does not have to be ashamed. Fighting and united, La Roja managed to climb to the semi-final. And if she had been more successful, she could undoubtedly have won her match against Italy. Eliminated on penalties (1-1, 4 tab 2), the team coached by Luis Enrique leaves with the honors. But when it comes time to congratulate the national team, Gerard Pique wanted to push a little rant on the penalty shootout.
“Huge selection tournament. We can be proud. There is a lot of merit in reaching the Euro semi-finals. I don’t think there is a better team in the competition, but shots on goal are sometimes very cruel. It is no coincidence that in the four rounds (shots on goal) at both Euro and Copa America the team that shoots first has won. Stats say the first one has more chances and in a tournament like this, it doesn’t feel right to me that a toss (of the team that shoots first) gets you to start (the streak) with a disadvantage “, he posted on Twitter.

It is no coincidence that the four rounds that have been so much in the @EURO2020 like in the @CopaAmerica the team that shoots first has won. The statistics say that the former has more options and in a tournament like this it does not seem fair that a draw makes you start with a disadvantage– Gerard Piqué (@ 3gerardpique) July 6, 2021
