Spain beats hardly Tunisia (World cup Prepatory match)
Thanks to a late goal from Aspas, Spain has fought hard to Tunisia (1-0) this Saturday for the last match of preparation for the World cup 2018 of the two teams.
At the beginning of June, opposite the Swiss team-mates, with Andres Iniesta had conceded the draw against Switzerland (1-1).
Tunisia has failed to perform, and this Saturday in Krasnodar, that no opponent of Spain had failed to do : prevent the Roja to score at least one goal.
Iago Aspas has ended up by giving the victory to the selection of iberian, by taking advantage of a good work from Diego Costa (84th). But Tunisia showed that she was ready to compete with England, for his entry in the tournament, on 18 June.
The players of Nabil Maâloul are not gone so far as to inflict his first defeat in the Spanish Julen Lopetegui. undefeated since the taking of office of the coach, in 2016, or twenty matches.
But what are the Eagles of Carthage who purchased the most beautiful opportunities until the 84th minute. first on a counter starting with a pass to the blind poorly adjusted Thiago Alcantara and poorly finished by Fakhreddine Ben Youssef (the 12th). then on a missed Sliti, yet in an ideal position in the face Of Gea (34th).
Opposed to Tunisian sealed and engaged in their duels, the Spaniards have committed unusual and inaccuracies in their passing play. They are delivered to a handful of centres to approach the goal of Mathlouti, and much more. Lopetegui has changed his whole right side from the break, thus leaving Odriozola, of which one is really not sure he won a few points Saturday.
Then he made a move on his team with three defenders with the release of Jordi Alba (76th). Lucas Vazquez and Asensio have therefore occupied the corridors, but it is the entrance of Diego Costa (60th) who has done the most harm to the Tunisians. The striker from Atlético has perfectly taken advantage of a poor alignment of the opposing defense on the action of the goal, and also provided an opportunity on a good service Asensio (90th).
