[Selection Under-17] Spain 1 - 1 Georgia

Barely two minutes had elapsed game, a penalty from Chechelashvili put the hosts ahead of the mini-tournament. From that moment, the Spanish took control of the ball and reached the goal defended by Adamia extensively with danger. An inmate of the Spanish right-back, Bellerín ended with a center Bustos tried to finish. The same Bellerín had it again with a direct free-kick that stopped the Georgian goalkeeper. Spain created danger, above all to pieces, in corners, but could not get the ball ended up in the nets. The boots had in front of the Spanish, Ivan Calero, but with only the goalkeeper sent off very attached to the bottom.

Georgia, meanwhile, came timidly to the goal of Rubén White, who had a good intervention to reject a corner. The ups of both fullbacks, Grimaldo and Bellerín, assumed the start of the offensive plays in Spain: Grimaldo tried even with a lack lateral from the edge of the area. Still, one of the lighter plays of the first forty minutes was Calero, who after a brilliant career move staff from midfield to the opponent's goal could not complete the first Spanish both.

After the break, Spain jumped onto the field wanting to retain ownership of the ball but with the aim of having to dial a while keep them alive. Instead, it was Georgia who, encouraged by an audience that was very active and cheering throughout the game, he made it more clearly: Akhvlediani first and Mzevashvili then, after a brilliant move, shook the Spanish bench.

When it appeared that less was reaching Spain, Álvaro Bustos bounced a corner who headed the central Iván Sáez, getting the tying goal for the team that runs when passed Santi Denia 59 minutes of play. The score was 2-1 in the about to arrive via Dani Iglesias, who had jumped onto the field in the second half and did not materialize a great opportunity with only the goalkeeper, who managed to stop at close range Adamia. The last and clear chance in the closing stages, was Álvaro Bustos, who sent out a ball that grazed the crossbar and the coaching staff blew Spanish, who already believed in the comeback.
