England v/s Spain - friendly at Wembley

Spain to win / draw @ 1.30

A weakened English side should pose no difficulty to the all conquering Spanish (Barcelona) side. Got to feel for Capello, chap's missing the wedding of his son for this.

Half-time update: 0-0 at Wembley

Surprisingly flat at Wembley in the first half. The Spanish have dominated possession but have nothing to show for their efforts as yet. They're looking more like Arsenal rather than Barcelona. I could fancy England to steal a goal here, against the run of play.

Full-time: Spain lose!

As surmised, England scored early in the second half and never looked in trouble after that. A little luck along the way did help, of course. As evident in the above graph, the spreads crossed as soon as the goal went in and got progressively worse. Tough on the world champions, and the Arsenal quip I made earlier turned out to have rung true.
