Spain’s mixed form

Spain have won just three of their last six games in all competition in an underwhelming run of form for the former world champions.

Luis Enrique’s side’s last outing saw them defeat Ukraine 4-0 with the young Ansu Fati getting on the scoresheet.

The 18-year-old has made a strong start to this season for Barcelona netting three goals in three games in La Liga.

During the previous international break, Spain also held Germany to a 1-1 draw.

Next up for Spain is Switzerland on Saturday and then Ukraine on Tuesday.
