The Georgia striker finished a counter with his left foot to make it 1-0 to Georgia.
After the unexpected setback against Greece (1-1) in their opening 2022 World Cup qualifier, Spain’s match against Georgia was a must win one.
However, Spain did not dominate proceedings in the first half and Georgia looked very good on the counter. With one of those counters, they took the lead.

Kvaratskhelia ended up finishing one of the counterattacks after getting into the area and firing home with his left foot.
The Rubin Kazan striker made it 1-0 after a pass by Kiteishvili. A goal which puts Spain in big trouble in their World Cup qualification group despite there still being a long way to go.
It was no fluke either as Georgia could have taken the lead five minutes earlier when Unai Simon had to make a fine save from a header from a corner.
