Albania 0-1 Spain: Ferran Torres keeps Luis de la Fuente’s men’s 100 per cent Group B record intact

  •  Spain beat Albania 0-1, sending them into the knockout stages of Euro 2024
  •  Ferran Torres scored the game’s only goal, but sealed Albania’s tournament exit
  • LISTEN to It’s All Kicking Off! Steve Clarke out? Has the Scotland manager taken them as far as he can?

A single goal from Ferran Torres earned Spain a straightforward 1-0 win over Albania, securing their spot in the knockout stages of Euro 2024, and dumping their opponents out of the competition. 

The result means not only do Spain top Group B, but they do so with a perfect record of three wins out of three, and not a single goal conceded. It will not be wasted on Luis de la Fuente’s men that the last European Championship in which Spain managed this feat, was at Euro 2008 – a tournament they went on to win.

Torres’ low strike in the 13th minute looked like it might open the floodgates for Spain, but it ended up being a relatively quiet match across both halves, save chances from both sides being saved comfortably.
