Friendly international

Finland 0 - Spain 0

Spain played out a fairly meaningless 0-0 draw in a friendly match in Finland on Wednesday night. Coming just a few days after the Euro 2008 success in Denmark, Luis Aragonés used the occasion to give a run out to the rest of his squad. But although his side were on top for much of the first half, the best they could manage were a couple of half-efforts from Espanyol's Luis García. Local keeper Niemi made a couple of good saves from Pernía and Luis García after the restart, and Riera fired a shot against the foot of the post later on. The last chances fell to Roy Hodgson's team though, with Kallio heading wide following a corner and Johansson failing to find the target. (17.10.07)
