FIFA Confederations Cup: Spain 2 Uruguay 1

By Football News



Spain have begun their quest for a maiden Confederations Cup title with a 2-1 victory over Uruguay on Sunday.

The World Cup and European champions struck twice in the first half as they maintained control of the contest from the outset at Recife.

Pedro put Spain ahead on 20 minutes, before Roberto Soldado doubled their advantage 12 minutes later.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez then ensured a nervous finish for Spain, as he unleashed an 88th-minute pearler past Spain custodian Iker Casillas.
