Manchester United full-back Batlle starts for Spain in victory over Denmark

Manchester United full-back Ona Batlle was handed her first start for the Spanish national team since November as they defeated Denmark 3-0 in Alcorcón this evening.

The 22-year-old defender played the first 58 minutes of the match for Spain as they continued their impressive winning run in Santo Domingo.

Despite their dominance from the very first whistle, it took Spain until just before the interval to finally break the deadlock. Midfielder Alexia Putellas teed up her Barcelona teammate Aitana Bonmatí to score.

Manchester United defender Batlle was substituted early in the second half with Olga Carmona coming on in her place before Spain doubled their lead. Putellas was again the provider, this time for another of her club teammates, Patricia Guijarro.

Spain rounded-off a comprehensive 3-0 victory over a Danish side which struggled to cope with their flowing football with another goal from Bonmatí late on in the game.

The result now means that Jorge Vilda’s side have won each of their last 10 games while they have also kept clean sheets in all of those matches. It is now 903 minutes since Spain last conceded a goal which came in their 1-0 defeat to the United States at the 2020 SheBelieves Cup in Harrison, New Jersey.
