Alcázar de San Juan. Spain beat the Czech Republic 3-1 in this warm up match for next summer's World Cup in Canada. All the goals came after the break, Real Madrid Castilla's Mata opening the scoring after connecting with Jeffren's cross two minutes after the restart. The visitors equalised with a Fenin penalty after the striker was brought down in the area, but Mazuch was sent off for a second bookable offence soon afterwards. And Gines Meléndez's side took advantage to score two more, the first from César after good work by Jonathan and Mata, and the second from Diego Capel with a shot into the top corner of the net.
