Sergio Busquets was Spain’s first pitcher in the penalty shoot-out. The captain has assumed responsibility at a decisive moment, but fortune has not accompanied him when he crashes his shot against the goalpost of the Swiss Sommer.
The midfielder’s failure has increased the Spanish team’s losing streak from eleven meters, since with his Spain he chained 6 missed penalties.
It all started in the Nations League. Against Switzerland in Basel, Sergio Ramos missed both of his attempts from the fatal spot. Then came the one who scored Abel Ruiz in the friendly against Lithuania just before the Eurocup.
Already in the Euro Tournament, Gerard Moreno failed one against Poland and Álvaro Morata another against Slovakia, extending the team’s negative streak to 5.
Busi also missed his on the penalty shoot-out against Switzerland, but not Dani Olmo, who nailed his shot to the squad on Spain’s second shot from eleven meters.
Fortunately, and despite a new failure at the feet of Rodri, Gerard and Oyarzabal have succeeded in qualifying Spain for the ‘semis’ of the Eurocup.
