SPAIN Held To A Draw In Granada By Greece In Their World Cup Qualifier
Spain kicked off their Qatar World Cup 2022 campaign tonight (Thursday 25) against Greece, at Granada’s Estadio Los Cármenes in Andalucía, and came away frustrated after being held to a 1-1 draw in their Group B match.
The first big moment of the game came when Spain’s Dani Olmo, of RB Leipzig, rattled the crossbar with a long-distance effort, but then it was Atletico Madrid forward, Alvaro Morata, who latched on to a lofted Koke through ball to fire in from close range and put them firmly in charge of the game, on 32 minutes.
Spain’s influential captain, Sergio Ramos, of Real Madrid, who has been struggling with injury of late, was substituted on the hour mark, and it was the man who replaced him, Inigo Martinez, whose rash challenge on the Greek midfielder Giorgos Masouras, who gave the penalty away.
Anastasios Bakasetas stepped up and smashed the ball in from the spot to level the scores, and stun Luis Enrique’s side, who, although they had most of the possession, just could not put the ball into the Greece net, with Morata spurning their best chance when he headed straight at the goalkeeper.
Next up in Group B for Spain is a trip to Georgia on Sunday.
