Spain continued their dominant run in the Euro 2024 group stage with a 1-0 victory over Albania, making it three wins out of three.

However, same cannot be said about their opponents, Albania, after finishing fourth and eliminated with just one point in the tournament.

The match saw Spain taking an early lead through Ferran Torres, who capitalized on an assist from Dani Olmo.

Torres’ shot hit the inside of the upright before finding the net.

Albania, needing a win and a favorable result from the Croatia-Italy game to advance, failed to salvage a goal.

Spain’s Dani Olmo nearly doubled the lead before half-time, but his effort was thwarted by a tackle from Atalanta defender Djimsiti.

The win means Spain and Italy are certain to advance to the competition’s last 16.
