Spain's U21 side scored a tiki-taka masterpiece in qualifier vs Northern Ireland


There's a reason that football is known as the 'beautiful game'.

Whether it be an imperious piece of defending, a curling finish, a spectacular save or an electric bit of skill, there are so many aspects of the game that are behind its wild popularity.

Sure, it has its ugly side, a side that reared its ugly head during violent scenes among Hungary fans at Wembley on Tuesday night, but, for the most part, it really is beautiful.

Fortunately the Spanish u/21 side were able to counter balance the crowd trouble in London with an absolute masterpiece in their clash with Northern Ireland.

Initially, the Spaniards looked to be hemmed in as they looked to play it out from the back but, in the blinking of an eye after a hurricane of one-touch madness, they had worked their way out and were bearing down on goal.

The vision and quick feet involved simply left the opposition with no hope and the speedy finish from Sergio Gomez at the end popped a very handy cherry on top of what was already lovely cake.

When one touch football is played as ruthlessly as that, it really can be a magnificent sight - it's no wonder the clip of the goal is blowing up on social media.
