SPAIN 2 HAITI 1 | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY GAME RESULT

The Spanish Football National Team took the road today towards the FIFA Confederations Cup tournament in Brazil with the first of the two International Friendly matches scheduled in the United States.

The current FIFA World & Euro Champions faced Haiti in Miami to win 2 - 1 in a match that was more a warm-up & "back to basics" affair for Spain, while Haiti had a chance to win some Football pride & give some joy to their countrymen back home who have had it hard in recent years. Apart the match helped raise funds for the Haitian people & to build up Football infrastructure back home.


Spain went into the game with a starting 11 that went on changing as things advanced so most in the the 23 man squad could get a run & a touch of the ball. The main news was that goalkeeper Casillas was back under the posts after nearly 5 months sidelined. 

The goals for Spain came in the first half with Cazorla scoring in the 8th min & Cesc Fabregas heading in the 19th min. From here onwards & with the changes made Spain relaxed in their game & reduced the intensity. Although Spain hit the post twice in the second half & had more chances, Haiti took advantage of the Spanish "lapses" & managed to score a "historic" goal in the 55th min via Guerrier.

The main conclusion that can be made today is that some Spanish Internationals are "soft" & need to improve their concentration if they are to fair well in the upcoming Confederations Cup tournament. Their next scheduled Friendly International will be on the 11th of June in New York against the Republic of Ireland & hopefully this will further serve to build up & focus the Spanish Football Team for what is to come ahead in Brazil.
