France Beat Spain to Emerge Champions of the UEFA Nations League

Goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe ensured France came back from a goal down to beat Spain in the final of the Nations League on Sunday, October 10th, 2020 at the San Siro Stadium.

There were appeals of a penalty from Spain both on and off the pitch after a cross from Rodri hit Jules Kounde’s arm as he turned away from the cross, but VAR saw nothing malicious in the incident. There was really no obvious chance on goal from both sides, but the game has been interesting. The first half ended goalles.

France took the lead on the 80th minute with the goal from Mbappe, who connected to a pass from Hernandez. Spain created a lot of chances in the last minutes of the game, but Hugo Lloris ensured they did not find the back of the net.

The match ended 2-1 in favor of France. The French have now won two major competitions in three years.
