Spain draw World Cup warm-up game
Lots of possession but not enough incisiveness: that sums up Spain's 1-1 draw against Switzerland in Villarreal on Sunday evening. Bayern's Thiago pulled the strings in midfield for 90 minutes as the hosts controlled the whole game, but their only goal came through Alvaro Odriozola in the 29th minute. Ex-Wolfsburg man Ricardo Rodriguez netted the Swiss equaliser on 62 minutes. The Spaniards have one more friendly against Tunisia on Saturday before they face Portugal, Iran and Morocco in the group stage in Russia.
