LTA Agency is proud to represent Verónica Boquete, captain of Spain’s national team, whose elegant goal in the 5th minute of the Group C match Spain-England, raised the spirits and inspired her team to fight until the end and win a very even, unpredictable and at times dramatic game. On her 32nd appearance for the national team Vero got her revenge for Women’s Euro 2009 and 2011 FIFA Women’s world Cup, when England defeated Spain. But Spain’s victory was not that clear until the very end of the game.
Very soon after Boquete’s great opening in the 5th minute, England replied with the goal of Aluko, reminding Quereda’s players that the battle had just began. Marked by such an energetic and eventful beginning, the first half passed by with an unchanged result and so did most of the second half. Meanwhile, however, Spain was obviously trying harder, with a significantly higher number of attempts both on and off target, and also with more fouls and yellow cards. After an excellent performance at the beginning of the game, Vero was restlessly aiming at the goal again and again, pressuring England’s defense.
But the true drama began in last minutes of the standard time. Jenni, Vero’s teammate from Tyresö FF, scored in the 86th minute and the expectations were clearly for a victory for Spain. England, however, again was very quick with the reply: Bassett scored in the 89th minute. Another time the outcome was foreseen as a drawn match, but Spain did not give up. A minute after the end of the standard time, Boquete’s shot at the goal missed, but gave hope to her team and in the third minute of the added time Adriana, also represented by LTA Agency, crossed the ball to Putellas who scored the final and winning goal for Spain, leaving the team on top of Group C along with France.
