Switzerland 0-1 Spain: Pablo Sarabia gives Roja first Nations League win

Sarabia slid home Marcos Llorente's cross in a goal which was allowed to stand after a video assistant referee review for offside.

The Swiss had two late chances in Geneva, with Breel Embolo lobbing wide and Djibril Sow's last-second volley blocked.

Spain is on five points from three games in Group A2.

Portugal - who beat the Czech Republic 2-0 - are two points clear of their neighbours.

Switzerland's only first-half attempts were miscued headers from Breel Embolo and Eray Comert, who each might have done better. However, Sarabia also passed up an opportunity for his second when he blazed over.

Chances were even more sparse into the second half, with Switzerland gaining a foothold without threatening.

Llorente whipped a left-footed shot wide, but Sarabia had continued to be the game's most dangerous player and his withdrawal just past the hour mark teed up a low-key finale.
