Luis Diaz’s stellar performance led Colombia to a 1-0 victory over a lackluster Spain at the London Stadium on Friday evening.

In a surprising turn of events, Colombia secured the win against Spain, with Diaz emerging as the standout player.

Despite leaving key players on the bench, including stars like Lamine Yamal and Dani Carvajal, Spain dominated possession but struggled to convert it into significant opportunities. The front four failed to create much in the first half.

Colombia’s manager Nestor Lorenzo’s decision to introduce James Rodriguez at halftime proved pivotal, altering the dynamics of the game.

Colombia gained control, with Diaz playing a crucial role in attack. The deadlock was eventually broken by Daniel Munoz, who scored a spectacular volley after Diaz’s impressive play on the left.

Despite substitutions from Spain, including Alvaro Morata and Nico Williams, they couldn’t change the outcome.

Spain’s inability to capitalize on possession raises concerns about their attacking prowess, especially with the Euro 2024 approaching.

Diaz was undoubtedly the star of the match, showcasing his explosive pace and skill to trouble Spain’s defense consistently.

On the other hand, Spain’s struggle to create chances highlighted their need to improve in attack.

Looking ahead, Spain will aim to bounce back when they face Brazil in their next friendly at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Colombia will take on Romania at the Wanda Metropolitano on the same day.
