La Furia Roja to take on Northern Ireland in a friendly before heading out to Germany for Euro 2024.

Spain hosts Northern Ireland in their final friendly match as they prepare for the upcoming European Championships in Germany. La Furia Roja will aim to take one more step forward in the tournament after their semi-final exit on penalties to eventual champions Italy in Euro 2020. With a talented squad at his disposal, Luis de la Fuente is expected to guide the team deep into the competition.

After losing to Colombia and drawing with Brazil in their two friendlies back in March, Spain returned to winning ways in style on Thursday evening, putting five unanswered goals past Andorra. Mikel Oyarzabal netted a hat-trick during a strong performance from the hosts. They face a challenging group in the Euros, drawn against Croatia, Italy and Albania.

Northern Ireland, though, will not play at Euro 2024, having finished fifth in their qualification section. They had only managed to pick up nine points from their 10 matches during a tough qualifying campaign. The home team are likely to face a tough challenge from the Green and White Army and it will be an exciting clash to watch.

Players to Watch

Lamine Yamal (Spain)

Lamine Yamal’s dribbling prowess isn’t only eye-catching but efficient and purposeful, his dribbles more often than not lead to a direct attacking threat. He’s also a two-footed dribbler and as such makes his dribbling angles all the more unpredictable for any marker to decipher.

Yamal’s close control is so exquisite that the ball at his feet looks magnetic. The teenager is an excellent ball striker, adept at creating quick separations for powerful shots in a matter of moments.

Conor Bradley (Northern Ireland)

Conor Bradley is an impressive athlete who is able to accelerate into spaces with purpose. His ability to accelerate into space also helps him receive towards the touchline, from where he makes regular movements to help build from deep and also progress the ball forward.

Bradley can whip deliveries in, drive them across goal, cut back or stand the ball up to the back post, adapting to the runs and positioning of teammates. He can be a threat to Spain in the upcoming match.
