Okay, the keeper should have done better. But Saúl has a lovely technique when the right ball arrives into the box, he was given the chance to score a chilena and he took it.
After a lovely ball from Valencia’s José Luis Gayà, Saul hit an acrobatic finish to give Spain a 1-0 lead over Macedonia in the Euro Under-21 opener for both sides. Atlético Madrid’s midfielder, who played recently against Colombia for the senior team, is poised for a massive tournament as Spain’s midfield general.
Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised when Saúl scores a perfect overhead kick. He has had plenty of practice.
