The better translation for this meaning would be "Greece (won against)/(beat) Spain yesterday." The phrase "won over" is a correct literal translation but in English means to convince someone of something.

It can technically have the intended meaning, but would tend to have a comma, or a some kinda of short pause in speech.

Greece won, over Spain, yesterday.
