Spain defeated Portugal 1-0 in Braga last night to go to the Final Four of the Nations League.

Nico Williams came on in the 73rd minute to assist Álvaro Morata’s winning goal. In a post-match interview that appeared on Marca, he mentioned what Morata told him after the goal:

“For me it is an honor to be here. Morata told me that the goal is mine. I saw him there alone and I passed it to him.”

While he wants to go to the World Cup, he understands that the decision is not in his hands:

“I’m growing as a player and a person. Hopefully I can be at the World Cup, but that is the coach’s decision.”

“He told me to be brave and to be myself. Let’s see if we can win the Final Four.”
