Villarreal star Mario Gaspar scored with this stunning effort as he helped Spain secure a 2-0 win over England on Friday night.
In a game of few chances up until the 24-year-old made his impact, it was the hosts who secured a deserved win with Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla adding a second after coming off the bench.
After their disappointing exit at the 2014 World Cup, Spain will be desperate to make an impression in France next summer and retain their European crown.
It hasn’t been a positive season for many of their stars so far this year though, particularly those plying their trade at Chelsea with both Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa struggling to have their usual influence for the reigning Premier League champions.
The situation warranted a response from the former, as reported by Sky Sports, but it remains to be seen whether or not he and his compatriot can help turn things around at Stamford Bridge and relieve some of the pressure that has built on Jose Mourinho.
Nevertheless, while neither individual was able to get on the scoresheet on Friday night, Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque will be pleased with what he saw as his side secured a comfortable win and were able to add a killer instinct to their play in the latter stages.
Cazorla in particular is experiencing another impressive campaign with Arsenal in a more withdrawn midfield role, but he would have certainly enjoyed being further up the field on Friday before producing this composed finish.
In contrast, it was a first defeat in 15 games for England, as Roy Hodgson used the friendly as an opportunity to try out different combinations with the likes of Michael Carrick and Fabian Delph starting in midfield.
England face France in the second of their two international friendlies during the break next week, and Hodgson will hope for an improved performance and result as his side continue to look for a confidence boost against one of their main rivals next summer.
