Spain beat Croatia 5-4 on penalties to clinch Nations League glory as they celebrated their first trophy win since Euro 2012.

Real Madrid wing-back Dani Carvajal who came in much later in the game converted the winning spot-kick with a Panenka after the game had finished goalless after extra time, giving head coach Luis De La Fuente, only appointed Luis Enrique’s successor in December, a trophy-winning start to his tenure.

Croatia, World Cup finalists in 2018 and third-placed finishers in Qatar last year, were hoping to lift their first trophy but could not find a way to goal across the 120 minutes despite the best efforts of Luka Modric, with substitutes Lovro Majer and Bruno Petkovic then seeing their penalties saved by Unai Simon in the shootout.
