In the last previous match, Xavi Hernandez saved Spain

In Santander, Spain did not convince. Luis Aragones team only beat United States of America 1-0. Just in the second time, when Güiza, Senna, De la Red and Fernando Navarro entered, they changed the development of the match.

For want of 11 minutes a great play of Xavi sealed the final result. Thus, still without satisfying the Spanish fan, La Furia Roja has played 16 meetings without knowing the defeat.

It was the last previous friendly match before the EURO 2008. Yes. No more friendlies. The hour of truth arrived.

Spain: Iker Casillas - Sergio Ramos, Carlos Marchena, Carles Puyol, Joan Capdevila (Fernando Navarro, 52) - Santiago Cazorla, Xabi Alonso (Senna, 46), Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fábregas (Arbeloa, 84), David Silva (De la Red, 57) - Fernando Torres (Güiza, 46)

USA: Tim Howard (Guzand, 46) - Steve Cherundolo (Hejduk, 46), Oguchi Onyewu, Carlos Bocanegra, Heath Pearce - Eddie Lewis (Wolff, 79), Maurice Edu, Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey (Mastroeni, 86) - Eddie Johnson, Freddy Adu (Beasley, 46)

The two last matches played by Spain, were less than friendly ones. They were just test before starting the Euro. In both matches the aim were similar: ball control and keeping positions, which are crucial to face Russian counter-attack.

That was all, just training
