The World Football - Soccer Champions SPAIN defeated USA in a International Friendly at Boston (USA) 0 - 4 in their first game of a two match Spanish Football National Team tour that takes them onto Venezuela next week.
The match was played on an awkward surface with natural grass placed on top of the habitual artificial surface which made it uncomfortble to play the ball as it did not bounce. Said this, both teams adapted perfectly, especially Spain which made it look like there was never any "technical" problems at all.  Spanish Coach Del Bosque said before the match that everyone would get a run & players who normally dont start began the match in the starting line-up like Reina, Negredo, Silva...with Valero, Torres, Casillas.. etc all rotating through the match. 

Spain was dominant all the game, but more so in the first half that saw three goals.
Spanish midfielder SANTI CAZORLA scored two tonight in the 27th & 40th min, along with ALVARO NEGREDO in the 31st . The latter hit the cross-bar before he scored & David Villa shaved the post to highlight total control from the Spanairds.
The second half was not so intense for the Spanish side as the constant changes halted the momentum of the team throughout the 45 minutes. Spain did score another goal thanks to FERNANDO TORRES in the 73rd min, who broke a 9 month "goal drought" with the Spanish National Football Team. Torres, just as his team-mate in the first half Negredo, also hit the "wood work" denying him & Spain a goal.

Comfortable win from Spain as expected from the World Champions, with entertainment, great skillfull Football-Soccer & everyone happy with the opportunity to see the best Football players in the World in the USA.

Now Spain goes off to Venzuela to play their last International Friendly before the summer break.
