Mestsky Fotbalovy of Opava.
The Real Sociedad player scored her second goal of the tournament played in the Czech Republic. Time stood still at Opava’s Mestsky Fotbalovy as Uria soared inside the Scandinavian team’s box to take advantage of a cross from the left wing by Ornella Vignola.
His stubbornness, unappealable, It was worth a ticket for the final that Spain will play next Saturday against the winners of Norway-France. She did justice to an almost perfect clash of the girls led by Pedro López, who only lowered their arms in the last stretch of the duel, when Sweden, desperate to equalize, had a timid attempt at reaction that did not bear fruit.
Partly also thanks to Meritxell Font, who repelled one of the few Swedish chances in Lisa Björk’s boots. The Barcelona goalkeeper, in a last desperate stretch of her rivals, took a saving hand in the last stretch of the duel that avoided an extension that would have been very unfair.
And it is that before, Spain, from the first minute of the duel, came out with the knife between its teeth ready to go over Sweden to reach its ninth final in history. With Júlia Bartel and Fiamma Ianuzzi highly inspired by the rule of the game, Spain danced with their rival, unable to stop a gale from which they emerged unscathed due to a lack of aim.
During the first 45 minutes, Pedro López’s team accumulated many chances: Bartel started the carousel with a shot from outside the box; Fiamma followed up with a header that narrowly went wide; Laborde forced Barmack to pull out a miraculous hand with a cross left-footed shot; Uria tried it with another header that did not find a goal; and in the end, Bartel and Fiamma, from a distance, also touched the goal.
Sweden came out alive from the Spanish siege in the first part. But, in the second, they were once again overtaken by Spain who, finally, after 52 minutes, were able to celebrate a goal that was as desired as it was deserved. Uria was in charge of breaking the Scandinavian wall, he did justice and then Font appeased the anxiety of Sweden, which in the end knelt before a header that was worth a final.
