Spain's Gaya nets late goal to snatch draw with Germany

Baku, September 4, AZERTAC

Spain scored a stoppage-time equaliser through Jose Luis Gaya to rescue a 1-1 draw away to Germany on Thursday in their Nations League opener and first international in almost 10 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Reuters.

Local-born Timo Werner struck six minutes after halftime, threading a low shot between two defenders to beat goalkeeper David De Gea in an empty Stuttgart arena.

Spain had looked set to fail to score for the first time after 40 consecutive games before Gaya sneaked in to notch the leveller with the last kick of the game.

Ukraine lead League A Group 4 with three points following a 2-1 win over Switzerland with Germany and Spain on one point.

The Germans next travel to Switzerland on Sunday, while Spain host Ukraine.
