Spain are the final team to qualify for the Nations League finals next year, and will join Croatia, Italy and the Netherlands as the last four teams to compete. 

Here is what went down in the final matchday of the Nations League group stage yesterday: 

Nations League 22/23 group stage: Spain make it through to finals 

  • Portugal 0-1 Spain 
  • Switzerland 2-1 Czech Republic
  • Ukraine 0-0 Scotland 
  • Ireland 3-2 Armenia 
  • Albania 1-1 Iceland 
  • Sweden 1-1 Slovenia 
  • Norway 0-2 Serbia

Portugal 0-1 Spain 

Alvaro Morata scored the only goal of the game to give La Roja a much needed win, and help them qualify for the Nations League finals. The Atletico Madrid striker repaid the faith shown in him by Luis Enrique, with a late goal. 

Unai Simon also had a heroic display between the sticks, denying Cristiano Ronaldo twice to keep an important clean sheet.

Scotland and Serbia promoted 

Scotland only needed a point from their game against Ukraine, and were able to scrape through to make it to League A. Serbia, on the other hand, defeated Norway thanks to Aleksander Mitrovic and Dusan Vlahovic scoring a goal each. 

Lastly, Ireland survived a late scare against Armenia to stay third in their group, while their opponents are relegated to League C.
