Spain hosted Scotland at the Estadio de La Cartuja on Thursday. In a close encounter, the home side managed to pull off a 2-0 win. Goals from Alvaro Morata and Oihan Sancet earned Spain the 2nd spot in Group A. However, the international break always poses a risk where several players pick up injuries. Liverpool star Andrew Robertson became the latest to fall victim.

The 29-year-old Scotland captain was forced off the pitch in minute 44. The Liverpool left-back was caught in an awkward clash with Spain Goalkeeper Unai Simon. Andrew Robertson fell face down in front of Simon, and then Spain #23 proceeded to fall on Robertson. This put pressure on the Scot’s outstretched arm. Subsequently, Robertson was seen to be in discomfort.

Moreover, he had to be carried out while assisted by medical staff. He was seen cradling his arm in a makeshift sling. The injury means that Liverpool will be without the services of the player for at least 2-3 weeks. His recovery will determine his availability.

However, he is unlikely to feature for the game against Everton. Several fans have taken to social media to criticize the hectic schedules of the International break.

A spectacular free-kick from Scott McTominay gave the visitors the lead. However, a VAR check meant that it was disallowed. Alvaro Morata then stepped up with a diving header in the 73rd minute. After Spain took the lead, Joselu threatened to double their lead. However, the Scottish defense kept out the effort.

Finally, a strike from Oihan Sancet put daylight between the two sides. Luis de la Fuente’s side now have 12 points from 5 games. Norway is up next for La Roja.
