Spain won the 2023 UEFA Nations League final against Croatia, after a penalty shootout following a 0-0 draw after extra time.
The match was played at De Kuip stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Both teams had chances to win the match in regular time, but neither was able to find the back of the net. In extra time, both teams continued to create chances, but neither was able to break the deadlock.
The penalty shootout was close, with both teams scoring their first four penalties. However, Croatia missed their fifth penalty, while Spain scored their fifth to win the match.
This is Spain’s first UEFA Nations League title, and their first major trophy since winning Euro 2012. It is also their first trophy under new manager Luis Enrique.
Here are some additional details from the article that I paraphrased:
- The match was played in front of a crowd of 43,000 people.
- Spain’s goalkeeper, Unai Simon, was named the man of the match.
- This is the first time that the UEFA Nations League final has been decided by a penalty shootout.
- Spain has now won 6 of their last 7 matches against Croatia.
