Russia draws with Spain in St. Petersburg

The Russia-Spain football friendly ended in a 3-3 draw at the Krestovsky Stadium of Russia’s St. Petersburg yesterday.

Spain’s early pressure was rewarded when Jordi Alba scored nine minutes into the game, followed by two goals from the penalty spot by Sergio Ramos on the 35th and 53rd minutes. Russia’s Fedor Smolov scored his team’s first goal of the game on the 41st minute, and then another goal on the 70th minute to level the final score. Yuri Zhirkov scored six minutes into the second half.

Russian goalkeeper Andrei Lunev was injured and left the game on the 91st minute, after a nasty collision with Spain’s Rodrigo Moreno in Russia's goal.

As a result, Denis Glushakov had to play in the goal for about a minute, because the Russian team has already made all its substitutions.
