Three-time champions Spain overcame an early scare to defeat a spirited Georgia 4-1 on Sunday, advancing to the UEFA Euro 2024 quarterfinals and ending Georgia’s fairytale run. La Roja will now face hosts Germany in the quarterfinals after a dominant display in Cologne, featuring goals from Rodri, Fabián Ruiz, Nico Williams, and Dani Olmo.

Despite Spain’s perfect record in the group stage, where they won all three matches without conceding a goal, they found themselves trailing in the 18th minute. Robin Le Normand accidentally turned Otar Kakabadze’s cross into his own net, giving Georgia an unexpected lead.

Spain remained composed and equalized in the 39th minute. Williams set up Rodri, who fired a low shot into the corner. Six minutes into the second half, Lamine Yamal’s superb curling cross was headed home by Fabian Ruiz, making it 2-1.

Williams secured the win with a well-taken strike in the 75th minute, extinguishing any hope of a Georgia comeback. Substitute Dani Olmo completed the 4-1 rout with a goal seven minutes before the end, sealing Spain’s place in the quarterfinals.
