SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: SPAIN 0 GEORGIA 1 | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY GAME

SPAIN 0 GEORGIA 1 | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY GAME

Last International Friendly match for the Spain National Football Team tonight before heading off to France for the soon to start Euro 2016 Championship. Spain hosted Georgia & lost 0 - 1 in a surprise result that should serve to put back down to Earth some hyped- up local Football observers & media.

Yes, Coach Del Bosque made plenty of changes & this was a "sparring match", however the some old problems persist:

1. can´t find a way to break a solid defensive wall,
2. lack of fire-power upfront. Simply said, lack of goal.

Two areas that need to be solved along with an aspect that has crept into the Spanish Football Team, too many long ball passes

The Spain starting 11 was: 

De Gea; Juanfran (Bellerin) , Pique, Ramos (San Jose), Jordi Alba; Busquets (Pedro), Thiago Alcantara (Iniesta), Cesc (Koke), Lucas Vazquez, Aduriz & Nolito.

Silva - played mid 2º half as well.

The Spanish team created plenty of chances but failed to finish. The Georgia goal came from a Jordi Alba mistake pass to Sergio Ramos who missed & allowed Georgia to counter-attack & score in the 39th min through Marcookriashvili.

Spain needs to improve some aspects of their Football & fine tune their passing before their Euro 2016 Group opener next Tuesday.
