Madrid, June 4: Spain were held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland in the first of their two warm-up games for the World Cup. The Spanish, who thrashed Argentina 6-1 in March, had threatened to win at a canter when Alvaro Odriozola’s 20-yard volley put them ahead in Villarreal. But the Swiss, who were second best for long periods, capitalised on a mistake by Spain keeper David de Gea, Ricardo Rodriguez tapping in an equaliser. Spain play Tunisia on Saturday, while Switzerland take on Japan on Friday, the BBC reported. Despite fielding an experimental line-up, without any of the Real Madrid players that won the Champions League final just over a week ago, Spain remain unbeaten under head coach Julen Lopetegui. The 51-year-old who replaced Vicente del Bosque in 2016, has won 13 and drawn six of his 19 games in charge, to retain the longest current unbeaten streak in international football. IANS
