Spain stretched their unbeaten run to 15 matches across all competitions as they beat Switzerland 1-0 in Madrid on Saturday to remain in charge of Group A4 in the Nations League.
Luis Enrique’s men had impressed without finding the net in their friendly draw with Portugal last time out, but Mikel Oyarzabal – the winger chosen to lead the line against the Swiss – provided the decisive touch in the 14th minute to leave La Roja with seven points from three games.
Although Switzerland threatened first, it was a rare attack in an opening half dominated by Spain, who opened the scoring soon after through Real Sociedad star Oyarzabal’s well-taken finish following a defensive mishap by the visitors.
Spain crafted several opportunities to extend their advantage in the second period, and while they were ultimately unsuccessful, the away side’s lack of potency in attack meant one goal was enough.
