Spain faced off against Germany at the Al Bayt Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn another positive result in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Spaniards made a dominant start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Alvara Morata came off the bench and finally netted the opening goal in the 62nd minute when he scored with a brilliant finish. However, the Germans equalised in the 83rd minute courtesy of Niclas Fullkrug’s powerful strike. The contest ended with Spain being held to a 1-1 draw in Qatar.

Let’s take a look at how each Spain player fared during the match against Germany.

GK: Unai Simon – 7/10

The Spanish keeper made a few important saves at the back but couldn’t do much about Fullkrug’s excellent finish late in the game.

RB: Dani Carvajal – 6/10

He earned the ball back once and was tidy with his passing.

CB: Rodri – 7.5/10

Rodri gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and engineered one good chance going forward.

CB: Aymeric Laporte – 6.5/10

He made a couple of crucial defensive contributions and was accurate with his ball distribution.

The Barcelona midfielder got stuck in with some solid tackles but failed to influence the game in the final third.

Torres lacked quality in front of the German goal and was replaced early in the second half.

ST: Marco Asensio – 6/10

The Spaniard had a couple of bright moments in the game but never looked like he would score.
