And the Spanish team raised its score to 19 points at the top of the group, 4 points ahead of its Swedish counterpart, who has another chance to qualify through the European play-off.

The Spanish national team played the match and needed a point or a win in order to snatch the direct qualification card from this group to the finals, and succeeded in this through the goal scored by substitute Alvaro Morata (86).

In the same group today, the Greek team drew 1-1 with Kosovo.

On the other hand, the Swedish team needed to win any result in order to grab the top of the group and the direct qualification ticket, but it failed to win against its Spanish host, despite the dangerous opportunities it had through both halves of the match.

The Spanish national team, which won the 2010 World Cup, became one of the representatives of the European continent in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where it was preceded by Germany, Denmark, Belgium, France, Croatia and Serbia.

The Spanish and Serbian teams have raised the number of seats reserved in the 2022 World Cup so far to 9 out of 32 seats in the tournament;

They were also preceded by the Qatari team, which is participating in the tournament without qualifiers, as the representative of the host country, as well as the Brazilian team, the first to qualify from the South American continent.
