Spain 1. Saudi Arabia 0
Posted by ssbg on June 23, 2006
Spain strolled their way to three wins from three and top spot in Group H as their second string beat a poor Saudi Arabia outfit in Kaiserslauten.
Having enjoyed a wealth of possession, the only surprise was that Juanito's header was the only goal at half-time.
Mabrouk Zaid produced a string of saves in the Saudi goal, with Joaquin, Jose Antonio Reyes and David Albelda denied.
However, a late Saudi surge did cause Spain some discomfort, with Saad Al Harthi firing a fine chance over.
The result means Spain will face France, who finished runners up in Group G behind Switzerland, in the second round on 27 June in Hanover (2000 BST).
