SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: SPAIN 0 - GERMANY 1 RESULT | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY GAME

SPAIN 0 - GERMANY 1 RESULT | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY GAME

Lots of hype before the match between Spain & Germany, but the end result was somewhat disappointing. The final result 0 - 1 to Germany with a late goal from Toni Kroos (88th min) that included a mistake from substitute goalie Casilla. The terrible weather conditions & wet turf did not help & Spain may well feel they were unlucky.

The Germans went in with only 4 "regular" names, while Spain gave some playing time to the players which normally sit it out. This & the terrible wet conditions took the glitz & "interest" out of the night. 

The starting 11 for both sides:

Spain - Casillas; Azpilicueta, Pique, Ramos, Bernat; Raul Garcia, Bruno, Busquets, Isco; Morata & Nolito.

Germany - Zieler; Höwedes, Mustafi, Rüdiger; Rudy, Khedira, Kroos, Durm; Müller, Götze & Volland

Spain vs Germany 2014

Overall very equal game with perhaps Spain with more goal opportunities, especially in the 2º half, were they failed to convert their chances & paid for it with the final result. Names to mention for Spain are Isco who is on a "roll" & Nolito who debuted in front of his home crowd & was enthusiastic-dangerous. Camacho, Casilla & Callejon got on in the 2º half & won their first Senior International Cap.

Conclusion, excessive prize for Germany as a draw would have been the more just result. But Spain sinned in not taking their chances.
