The VCF striker replaced Diego Costa in the 59th minute
Rodrigo Moreno featured for the last 31 minutes of Spain’s friendly against Switzerland (1-1), as the World Cup edges closer. The Valencia CF striker was used as a number nine after being brought on for Diego Costa in the second half.
He looked to lead the pressing and search for their elusive second goal, but he couldn’t find his reward for his efforts.
After Switzerland found their equaliser through Ricardo Rodriguez, with the left back replying following Alvaro Odriozola’s opener, the away side sat back and made things tough. In the 71st minute, Rodrigo combined well with Marco Asensio, before Sommer did well to deny him on 82 minutes. Despite his best efforts, Rodrigo couldn’t find a way through.
