France has won the League of Nations, after beating Spain 2: 1 in a great final at the San Siro.
France is the champion of the second 202/21 edition of the League of Nations, after the victory against Spain on Sunday in Milan.
The World Cup managed to triumph by reversing the result, as Oyarzabal had given Spain the lead, thanks to goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe.
This was France’s second stunning comeback, as they also won the semi-final match against Belgium dramatically, reversing the score from 0: 2 to 3: 2 to advance to the final.
Despite the high pace of the game and the great quality, the teams did not have many scoring opportunities in the first half.
Oyarzabal broke the ice in the 64th minute when he beat Lloris from close range after escaping the French defense after a good service from Sergio Busquets.
But France’s reaction was astonishing, as Didier Deschamps’ side equalized just two minutes later when Benzema scored a spectacular goal from distance.
Mbappe scored the winning goal for the turkeys, albeit controversially due to the offside position, beating Simon alone in front of him in the 80th minute.
Luis Enrique’s team could have easily equalized the score and maybe even overturn it, but three great receptions of Loris in the last moments made him the hero of France.
France is only the second winner of the League of Nations and the first after Portugal, which won the inaugural tournament in the 2019/20 season.
