HALF-TIME Spain 1 – 1 Morocco That was terrific. Well, well, well! It all started as a dream as Spain trail against Morocco. Ramos was the guilty party. He dawdled on the ball and Boutaib snatched it away and raced clear before slotting it past De Gea. Spain in trouble.
An interesting piece of stat – David de Gea has now conceded all four shots on target he has faced at the 2018 World Cup.
And just like that Spain are level. Some wonderful quick passing from the La Roja sees Iniesta sent free on the left. He reaches the byline and pulls a pass back. Isco is on hand to smash the ball home.
MISSED! Spain squanders a golden chance to take the lead. Iniesta drives to the byline before squaring a pass across the six-yard box. Diego Costa gets a touch but it is too feeble to divert it home and the ball trickles wide.
What an interesting half, Morocco may cause damage for the 2010 champions now waiting for the second half.
