Spain beats Liechtenstein (8-0) and grabs the first three points of the group stage in their way to the World Cup. Juan did not play. This Saturday, United face City at Old Trafford.
Spain started its road to the World Cup in Russia trashing Liechtenstein 8-0 in León. Julen Lopetegui’s men scored seven goals in a second half where the strikers enjoyed themselves. Juan, despite warming up in the side-line during the first half, was one of the players that were ruled out.
The three points and a score that means a perfect result in the opening game of the group stage, now we will have to wait a month for the trip to Turin to play Italy. By now, Mata will return to Manchester to prepare this Saturday’s derby against City. It will be a thrilling game, with two teams that have started the league winning three out of three games. An appointment that Juan has referred in his weekly blog.
