SPAIN DRAWS 1 - 1 with GERMANY | INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY

SPAIN travelled to Düsseldorf to play the current World Champions GERMANY for an International Friendly game. The final result a 1 - 1 draw in an entertaining match with plenty of opportunities created by both sides.

Germany vs Spain

Excellent sparring game between two favourites coming into the soon to be celebrated FIFA WORLD CUP competition in Russia. Spain started strong in the 1ºst half while Germany slowly recovered their game & went better as the match continued. Both sides like to keep dominion of the ball & the match had possession 50-50.


SPAIN went ahead first when Iniesta created & made a surgical pass that found Valencia CF forward RODRIGO in the 6th min of the encounter to score a goal. Spain created more opportunities thereafter but both the German defenders & Goalkeeper Ter Stegen held out. It was in the 35th min when MULLER got onto a ball outside the square that he rammed home for the equalizer.

The 2ºnd half saw a much better German team controlling the game & making Spain´s goalie De Gea work hard with a couple of very important saves. Spain gave a run to fresh legs - Saúl, Nacho, Asensio, Diego Costa & debutan Rodri - & began creating opportunities some very clear like a Diego Costa occasion in front of goal that was stopped at the last moment by a German defender. 

End result a justified draw result for both teams who put in a nice game.

Spain will play their next International Friendly next Tuesday in Madrid against Argentina. Another excellent sparring match to examine players & squad progression.
