  • GOALLLLLLLLL!!!! COSTA PUTS SPAIN AHEAD! Pressure on the ball yields an opening for La Roja as Iniesta wins possession before Asensio releases Costa. He goes in for a 50/50 with Romero and wins the day as the ball deflects back off his shin and flies into the back of the net. Both players are in a heap on the floor, but at least Costa has the breakthrough.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLL!!!! ISCO FIRES HOME!!!!! The Real Madrid man doubles Spain's lead, sliding the ball into the net from close range.

  • GOALLLLLLLLll!!!! OTAMENDI GETS A GOAL BACK!!! Argentina are back in the game as the Manchester City defender rises highest in the box to head home. Banega's delivery from a corner on the left was pinpoint and Otamendi was able to get up and direct his header towards the bottom corner. De Gea got down, but the ball travelled through his hands and into the net.

  • GOALLLLLLLLL!!!!! ISCO NOTCHES HIS SECOND!!!!!! The Real Madrid man restores Spain's two goal advantage with a crisp low finish to beat Caballero. Iniesta opens up the Argentina defence with a simple ball over the top for Aspas. The forward takes it wide after Caballero forces him out. He checks backs and finds Isco, who responds with a fine strike to find the net.

Asensio releases Isco down the right flank and he cuts the ball back for Aspas. The forward loses possession, although it falls kindly for Thiago, who strikes his effort first time past Caballero.
