According to Opta, Simon is also at club level, the player who has been involved the most on own goals last season among top 5 European Leagues as his mistakes led to five goals.
The one against Croatia becomes the 9th own goal of the tournament. That is as much as from 1960 to 2016. UEFA has later attributed the own goal to Pedri and not Simon.
However, Spain equalized through PSG star Pablo Sarabia before the half-time.
