Julen Lopetegui delighted as Spain extends unbeaten run to nine games

Spain trained together in Murcia on Tuesday ahead games against Colombia and Macedonia

Spain's Asier Illarramendi, right, heads the ball against Colombia's Carlos Bacca, left, during the global friendly soccer match between Spain and Colombia at the Estadio Nueva Condomina in Murcia, Spain, Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

After a slow start for both teams on Wednesday, the hosts began to gel under the leadership of midfielder David Silva, who got the first chance of the night only to be stonewalled by Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina, reports Efe.

Gerard Pique, Cesar Azpilicueta and goalkeeper Pepe Reina all left a unsafe bouncing ball for someone else to clear and Edwin Cardona stole in to loft the ball over the line.

Morata headed home a cross from the left-flank by Saul Niguez to extend Spain's streak without a loss to nine games since Lopetegui took over after the European Championship past year.

Though scoring two goals may not seem like the greatest achievement, it is when visiting Spain. It was a good test. Do you think they boo me because of political issues?

"I always want to play for Spain", Morata, who joined up with the squad earlier than scheduled after helping Real Madrid retain the Champions League against his old side Juventus on Saturday, told Telecinco.

Radamel Falcao has become the most prolific goalscorer in the history of the Colombia national football team.

The Barcelona centre-back featured for the first hour of the contest, but was showered with jeers from the Spain supporters upon his second half substitution. With his 55th minute go-ahead goal in an global friendly against Spain on Wednesday, Falcao became the cafeteros' all-time leading scorer in worldwide play.

With the World Cup 2018 qualifier against Macedonia coming up on Sunday, players such as Chelsea's Diego Costa and Manchester United's David De Gea may be rested.

It was only the third draw for Lopetegui since he replaced Vicente del Bosque, with six wins in the other matches.
