Football: Spain scramble to draw in Chile friendly
GENEVA (AFP) - Reigning European and world champions Spain needed a last-gasp Jesus Navas goal to draw 2-2 with Chile in a friendly in the Swiss city of Geneva on Tuesday.
With neither side in World Cup qualifying action, they met in a repeat of a 2011 friendly, in which Spain came from behind to win 3-2.
On this occasion, Vicente del Bosque's side twice trailed before coming back to draw, with Eduardo Vargas netting Chile's two goals and Roberto Soldado and Navas on target for Spain.
Having come close to Spain's first-ever loss to Chile, del Bosque lauded his side's opponents.
