Real Madrid Star Helps Spain Clinch A Draw

International Friendly 

Result: Spain 2-2 Colombia

Date: 07 June 2017

Venue: Nueva Condomina

Alvaro Morata struck late in the second half to help Spain record a 2-2 draw with Colombia in an international friendly on Wednesday evening.

Spain carved out the first chance of the game in the 10th minute as Amdres Iniesta played in David Silva, who forced David Ospina into a fine save from close range.

However, La Roja broke the deadlock after 22 minutes as Pedro Rodriguez played in Silva, who skipped past Davinson Sanchez before firing past Opsina from six-yards out.

James Rodriguez nearly brought Colombia level in the 34th minute, but his effort from distance sailed inches wide of the upright.

The visitors leveled matters five minutes later, as Edwin Cardona took advantage of some poor defending and lifted the ball over the on-rushing Pepe Reina.

Spain opted for a few changes at the start of the second half, as Marco Asensio, Saul Niguez and Nacho Monreal were introduced.

However, it was Colombia who took the lead in the 56th minute when Falcao headed home Rodriguez's cross at the far post.

Spain nearly leveled matters after 63 minutes when Asir Illaramedni picked out Alvaro Morata, who headed just wide of Ospina's upright.

The home side eventually found the equaliser in the 87th minute as Morata lost his marker and headed home Saul's cross to salvage a draw.
