La Roja hit five past Northern Ireland

2024/06/08 23:05

Spain warmed up for Euro 2024 with an emphatic 5-1 win over Northern Ireland at the Son Moix Stadium.

Michael O'Neill's side took a surprise lead in just the second minute thanks to Daniel Ballard's header, but the hosts roared back with four goals before half-time and ran out comfortable winners. 

Pedri was the first on the scoresheet for Luis de la Fuente's side to level the scoreline at 1-1 and Alvaro Morata - Pedri again - and Fabian Ruiz put La Rosa 4-1 up at the interval. 

Substitute Mikel Oyarzabal added the only goal of the second half to extend Spain's winning margin and the 2012 Euro winners look in good shape ahead of their opening game at this summer's tournament in Germany. 

Spain kick off Euro 2024 this Saturday against Croatia, who geared up for the clash with a 2-1 friendly win over Portugal tonight.

Wow, what a dominant performance from Spain! The 5-1 win over Northern Ireland was a great way to warm up for Euro 2024. Pedri, Morata, and Fabian Ruiz were on fire in the first half. And Oyarzabal's goal in the second half just sealed the deal. Can't wait to see La Roja in action this Saturday against Croatia.

As a fan of the Spanish team, I am extremely disappointed with the performance of Northern Ireland. The fact that they took an early lead only to then concede four goals before half-time is really frustrating. However, I am happy to see my team in such good shape before the start of Euro 2024. I have high hopes for them and believe they will continue to dominate in the tournament. Bring on Croatia!
