Spanish goalkeeper Unai Simón commented on the national team's exit from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar at the last 16 stage of the tournament.

We didn't expect to be knocked out by Morocco. For 120 minutes of the game, we were better on the field. But that doesn't mean anything if we don't score. They were better than us in the penalty shootout. Simon told AS
