In Spain’s match versus Scotland yesterday, a Euro 2012 qualifier, they were their usual cheating selves: Not even letting Scotland have a sniff of the ball and then scoring goals with ease, just to embarrass them. And they let David Silva play a lot too, a guy who didn’t play in the World Cup that much since he was just too good.
Spain started to feel bad though, and decided to let Scotland score, but not a goal in the run of play, only a penalty kick. They let them get the goal because beating Scotland would also knock them out of the Euros, and Spain didn’t want them to go home feeling too bad. In the end though they let Scotland get some share of the possession, but only 33% and that was towards the end of the game when they got bored.
