Morata’s Goal Earns Spain Win Over Ukraine

Alvaro Morata scored the only goal of the game as Spain claimed a crucial victory over Ukraine in Euro 2016 qualifying Group C.
Juventus striker Morata, on his first start for Vicente del Bosque’s side, netted with a deflected effort to give Spain sole possession of second spot.
Spain are now three points clear of third-placed Ukraine in the pool. They remain three behind group leaders Slovakia who eased to a 3-0 win over bottom side Luxembourg.
Morata, who spearheaded Spain’s attack in the absence of injured Chelsea striker Diego Costa, provided the decisive moment in the 28th minute.
The former Real Madrid forward, 22, latched on to an exquisite pass from Atletico Madrid playmaker Koke and his shot took a slight deflection before looping over Ukraine goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov into the net.
