How will the Nations League final unfold? – .


Didier Deschamps’ brilliant France team hope to add another international trophy to their record when they face Spain in the Nations League final tonight.
The Blues suffered an acrimonious outing at Euro 2020 this summer, but came very close to their compelling record as a World Cup winner in the second half of their semi-final against Belgium on Thursday. Karim Benzema scored twice before Theo Hernandez crowned a spectacular victory in stoppage time.

Spain put in an equally exciting performance to secure their place in the final as Ferran Torres scored twice against European champions Italy.

Luis Enrique’s side also have history on their side, having won only one of their last seven meetings against France in all competitions, as they try to win their first trophy since 2012.
