Iñaki Saéz started his new reign as manager of the Spanish national side with a 1-1 draw in the friendly game against Hungary. Saéz showed that he was prepared to ring the changes, lining up with four new caps in his initial formation, with defenders García Calvo, Marchena and Raúl Bravo and midfielder Orbaiz all making their debuts.

A fifth new cap Juanito replaced Marchena at the break, one of seven substitutions as the manager gave a run out to all his squad in preparation for the Euro 2004 qualifier against Greece in September. Spain took the lead early in the second half when Tamudo headed Joaquín's cross past Kiraly. However Miriuta levelled the scores later in the half beating Ricardo with a shot from outside of the area.
