Lopetegui´s team defeated the Belgium red devils 0-2 at the King Baudouin Stadium in the first match of the New Age of the spanish national team.
Spain came back into an official match more than two months after the Eurocup deception. The match against Italy was the last one of a glorious time for Vicente del Bosque team and for the coach himself.
The players who were part of the new national team were not too different of the squad that lost in France. De Gea, Carvajal, Ramos, Pique, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Koke, Thiago, Silva, Vitolo y Morata was the firt eleven of Lopetegui. Nothing odd, same main players (Pique, Sergio Ramos, Busquets, Silva…) along with young ones (Koke, Thiago, Morata…)
The first goal of Spain in the friendly match came in the 33th minute, in an action started by Silva and finished by himself after a good pass of Vitolo. La Roja controlled the ball and the game and they showed to Roberto Martinez team the well known Tiki-Taka style.
In the minute 62, an action of Vitolo ended in a penalty for Spain. David Silva took the responsibility and scored his second goal in the match
Good sensations for the just started project of the Spain National team. The next match for Lopetegui´s guys will be September 5th at 8:45 p.m. local time against Liechtenstein. This time, the game will be counting for the qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
