Spain coach Luis Enrique said football had been unfair to his side after Thursday’s dramatic 3-2 defeat in Croatia left them in danger of failing to reach the Uefa Nations League finals.
The 2010 World Cup winners had to chase the game twice in the second half, with Dani Ceballos cancelling out Andrej Kramaric’s opener and captain Sergio Ramos levelling from the penalty spot after Tin Jedvaj had made it 2-1 to the hosts.
There were left with virtually no time to respond, though, when left back Jedvaj struck again in stoppage-time.
“We created a lot of chances, some of them where it looked impossible that the ball would not go in, we hit the crossbar, and football has been unfair to us,”
Luis Enrique told a news conference.
“In their first goal we made a mistake, their second came from a set-piece and they were lucky at the end. In the second half we deserved a lot more, we certainly didn’t deserve defeat but this is football and we need to accept it.”
