World Cup QL: Spain held to a 1-1 draw by Greece

Spain were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Greece in the first game of the World Cup Qualifier, Group B on Thursday evening. 

Alvaro Morata gave Spain the lead in the 33rd minute. Koke had the ball before looking for Morata who unleashed a shot with his left foot and the ball kissed the back of the net.

In the second half, Spain conceded a penalty after Inigo Martinez committed a foul inside the danger zone. Anastasios Bakasetas stepped up to take it and made no mistake, converting the penalty with a left-footed shot to the high centre of the goal. 

Spain will now put their focus in their next game on Sunday away to Georgia while Greece take on Honduras in a friendly match.
