19′ Isco leveled the game for Spain after a great team effort. Iniesta makes a great run inside the box and tees up Isco who smashes the ball into the roof of the net from close range. 1:1

81′ Morocco took the lead for the second time of the game with a powerful header into the top right corner. 2:1

90+1 Spain were in the brink of elimination before Iago Aspas leveled the game with a stylish flick from close range. The goal was disallowed for offside but after consulting the VAR, Spain were awarded the goal.
