Spain might have played out a surprise 2-2 draw with Colombia in a friendly game, but Pedro Rodriguez and Cesar Azpilicueta will be proud of their displays in that victory.
Pedro, who had a remarkable season with Chelsea, started on the left-hand side of a front three. The Chelsea winger was very lively for Spain and caused Colombia’s defence many problems. He provided the assist for the opening goal, taking a pass from Iago Aspas and supplied the cross which was scrambled home by David Silva in the 22nd minute.
Colombia got on level terms five minutes before the break as Edwin Cardona’s goal brought Colombia back into the game.
Not too long after the equaliser, Radamel Falcao, who spent last season on loan at Chelsea, rose highest to meet a James Rodriguez corner and head home.
Pedro was replaced by Sevilla’s Victor Vitolo in the 77th minute.
Azpilicueta, deployed at right-back, produced an assured display for the hosts, as he played the entire minutes of the game.
With the clock ticking, Chelsea target Alvaro Morata got the equaliser for Spain with two minutes left to go. Diego Costa was an unused substitute in the game.
