Recap

Spain vs Mexico was the first game of the quarterfinals of the Madrid Olympic Games’ football tournament. It was played in the San Mamés stadium (Bilbao).

Mexico’s regular goalkeeper Ricardo Espadas started the match as a forward and scored in the second minute, assisted by Suarez. In the 15th minute Espadas scored again, this time using a special technique where Suarez and Zaragoza launched him high in the sky so he could use his head to connect a cross from captain Hugo Ramirez. In the 30th minute Mexico’s goalkeeper (Gomez) was replaced by forward Salas, and Espadas moved back to defend the goal.

In the second half Spain made an incredible comeback thanks to Michael, who scored no less than six goals against a powerless Espadas.
