Spain defeated Azerbaijan 13-0 to secure qualification for UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
Misa, Ivana Andrés, and Marta Cardona started in what would normally be considered a 5-3-2/3-5-2 formation, but what was in reality a 3-3-4.
Since this was a contest between the best in the group vs. the worst, there was absolutely no confusion over what the result would be. It was merely a question of how much Spain would win by, as they completely dominated every facet of the game and forced their opponents to defend with 11 in their own box.

A set of 59th minute subs brought Maite Oroz into the action for Patri Guijarro, before further changes down the line gradually morphed the team shape into a very attacking 4-4-2.
She started and played the full game but maybe touched the ball once (not joking). Quite impossible to judge her performance based off of that, but congrats on the debut!
Had nothing to do defensively. Was secure in possession and lofted a nice ball over the top to instigate Spain’s 5th goal of the evening.
Absolutely tortured her markers 1v1 on both the left and the right and created numerous chances that could’ve (and possibly should’ve) been put away. She eventually ended up being directly involved in a couple goals for her efforts.
Another debutant alongside Misa, though there wasn’t much to do besides keep the ball ticking and let the forwards dominate by the time Maite came on.
