Chelsea Spain defender Cesar Azpilicueta has expressed discontentment over his side’s 1-1 draw with Italy in Thursday’s International friendly staged at Udine, Italy.
Lorenzo Insigne gave Italy a deserved lead, the first goal Spain had conceded in more than 600 minutes, but the advantage didn’t last long as Artiz Aduriz levelled with an emphatic finish that was questionable.
Azpilicueta after the game in an interview said he wasn’t happy with the result considering the fact that they conceded during their best spell.
“The draw leaves a sour taste. When we were at our best we conceded. The team reacted well to equalize. It was a hard game. Neither team was able to play their game.”
“He (Aduriz ) scored a striker’s goal, very important. He worked hard throughout the match and got his reward.”
“The Coach will be pleased with the options he has [in attack]. We have different forwards and sometimes matches require different options.” Azpilicueta said as reported by AS.
Aritz Aduriz equalised Lorenzo Insigne as Spain held Italy to a draw in Udine but David De Gea was the star of the show for La Roja.
De Gea meanwhile produced save after save, keeping his side in the game when it was goalless and preventing Italy on several occasions from re-taking the lead.
