Spain Claimed A 1-1 Draw Against Italy Thanks To Alexia Putellas
In becoming the first female to make 100 appearances for Spain, Alexia Putellas marked the occasion in style by scoring in a 1-1 draw against Italy.
The 28-year-old made her debut for La Roja in 2013 and, less than a decade later, won her landmark century cap in Castel di Sangro on Friday.
Putellas will be a key member of Spain’s Euro 2022 squad and she again proved her worth with an equaliser to cancel out Valentina Bergamaschi’s opener in the friendly. Putellas, who has also appeared three times for Catalonia, now has 27 goals for Spain at senior level.
The game was the final warm-up for both nations ahead of their respective European Championship campaigns getting under way in England next week.
Spain is in a group with Germany, Denmark, and Finland, while Italy will face France, Belgium, and Iceland.
