SPAIN DEFEATS BELGIUM 0 - 2 | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY

First International match for new Spanish National Coach Julen Lopetegui. Positive outcome with SPAIN defeating Belgium 0 - 2 away in their friendly match. Some changes in the starting 11 as seen in the below team photo but some philosophy of touch Football.

Belgium started well with a couple of clear chances but fizzed out as the game went on. Spain began touching the ball, controlling the pace & creating opportunities. Real Madrid forward Morata received a knock which brought on Diego Costa. The Chelsea FC forward livened up the forward line & a pass back from him towards DAVID SILVA brought the first goal in the 21st min when Silva found the back of the net.

Spain continued in the same line & Diego Costa missed some clear chances as the visitors were finding spaces. The second goal would come in the 61st min when DAVID SILVA converted a penalty on Vitolo.

The only real work for Spanish keeper De Gea came late in the match when he deflected a powerful shot from De Bruyne.

Good sparring match & better victory for Spain. Next Monday they face Liechtenstein in the first official Group qualifier for the World Cup 2018.
