France beat Spain to win Nations League

France have bounced back after a disappointing Euro 2020, and lift their second trophy under Deschamps after winning the 2018 World Cup.

Though Spain dominated throughout, in the end, they couldn’t turn it back around to win their first silverware under Luis Enrique.

FRANCE WIN THE NATIONS LEAGUE! Just like in the semi-final, they had to come from behind, and they beat Spain 2-1. The game started slowly, but it came to life after the hour mark, with Hernandez thumping an effort off the bottom of the crossbar before Spain went up the other end where Oyarzabal slotted past Lloris. They were ahead for just under two minutes when Benzema curled a brilliant effort into the top corner. Mbappe rounded off the win after another counter-attack, but Lloris made two very important late saves to make sure they would lift the trophy.
