- Álvaro Morata’s last striker secured a tense victory for Spain against Sweden
- However, the result saw Luis Enrique’s men top Group B in qualifying for Qatar.
- La Roja were not in their best fluid form in Seville against Janne Andersson’s team
- But Sergio Busquets believes that a young Spanish team has beaten some
Sergio Busquets believes that Spain has won over some of its skeptics after confirming its place in the 2022 World Cup.
Álvaro Morata’s 86th-minute goal against Sweden in Seville secured La Roja first place in Group B on a tense occasion at La Cartuja.
Luis Enrique’s team was not at their best against Janne Andersson’s team, and Emil Forsberg in particular missed some good opportunities for the visitors.

But Busquets insists that the determination of a young Spanish team can never be questioned and claims that those who supported them from the beginning played an important role in helping them qualify.
“Everything went great, but nobody said it would be easy against an opponent who closes very well on the inside and seeks transitions with fast attackers.” Busquets said via Marca.
“We played the game with dominance and in the end it turned out well. I am very happy for the people who have brought us here and I am very happy to be at the World Cup.
“We work hard as a group, and we do it very well, but sometimes we haven’t achieved the results we deserved.
Spain were not in their best fluid form but Busquets praised the group’s determination
“Those who have believed in us were important and little by little we have won over the people.”
However, Spanish coach Enrique claimed that he felt more pressure during the qualifying campaign for the World Cup in Spain than at Euro 2020 or in the later stages of the Nations League.
‘I have taken off a 100-kilo backpack’ said via Mundo Deportivo. ‘I have felt more pressure in this qualifying round than in the Euro or the’ Final Four ‘of the Nations League.
“I have taken a great weight off my shoulders. I am focused on having a good World Cup and I know that if a coach does not win, he receives criticism.
“This is how this wonderful football circus can be and I accept it.”
