Italy 1-1 Spain
Thirty-five year old Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz scored his second international goal in three caps to quickly answer Lorenzo Insigne’s first Italian goal since 2013, as these two powers drew a high-profile friendly at Stadio Friuli, home of Udinese. Spain had the better of possession, but Italy put 7 of 11 shots on target.
1 – Aritz Aduriz has scored one goal in his second appearance for Spain, as many as Diego Costa in his 10 games. Instinct.

Ikechi Anya scored on a counter attack in the first half, and that was all Scotland needed to land a win in Prague. The Czechs out shot Scotland 20-11 (6-2 on target), but Hull City’s Allan McGregor was unbeatable in the win.
9 – Scotland have scored in nine of their last 10 away internationals, the exception being their 1-0 loss in Georgia in September. Potent.
