Spain Reserves See Off Saudi Arabia

Group H Match

Saudi Arabia vs Spain
Kaiserslautern

Previous Encounters:
Saudi Arabia and Spain have never met before the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals.

The Match:
Spain are already qualified while Saudi Arabia need to score four goals and hope that Ukraine and Tunisia draw. Mathematically possible; realistically, not.

Gutierrez Juanito headed in Jose Antonio Reyes' free-kick in the 36th minute, to just about kill off any possible chance Saudi Arabia might have had.

If the other game remains a draw, Ukraine will join Spain in the Second Round.

Spain made most of the first-half attacking and Mabrouk Zaid made a few crucial saves to keep the score respectable at the break.

Half-time: (0:1).

David Villa replaced Raul at half-time but, although Spain failed to increase the scorline in the second-half, the Spaniards go through to the Second Round; as group winners.

Saudi Arabia had a few chances to level the score towards the end but they were never really a match for the Spain reserves.

Final Score:
Saudia Arabia 0 - Spain 1

Goalscorers Goalscorers:
0:1 Gutierrez Juanito (36)
