Spain drew their second group game against Serbia, and they now need at least a point against Italy in three days time to be sure of reaching the knockout stage. Barcelona’s Jordi Mboula and Abel Ruíz combined for Ruíz to open the scoring early on, and Brahim caused a few problems for the Serbian defence after that. However Iñaki Peña gave away a penalty on Stefan Ilic midway through the second half, and Jovelic converted the spot kick to keep his team in the competition.
