Macedonia falls to Spain in U21 Championship

The Macedonian U21 would certainly like to forget their first ever match in Euro finals after being trounced 5-0 to Spain.


The scoreline unfortunately does not realistically portray what was happening on the field. Macedonia enjoyed great deal of ball possession, created several goal scoring chances, rattled the bar once, but in the end, the more experienced Spanish team very much took advantage of each and every opportunity.

Real Madrid’s Asensio was the MVP of the match, scoring a hat trick, including two superb goals. But, as they say, there is a reason he plays for Real Madrid.

Goalie Aleksovski could have done better for at least two of the goals he allowed, however early jitters may have played a role in his mishaps.

Next up for Macedonia is Serbia.
