    Background: SPAIN FOUGHT BACK SUPERBLY TO FORCE A 2-2 DRAW AGAINST A POLISHED ITALIAN SIDE IN A FRIENDLY SOCCER INTERNATIONAL AT MADRID YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). THE TECHNICALLY SUPERIOR ITALIAN SIDE -- WHICH HAS WON A PLACE IN THE WORLD CUP COMPETITION IN MEXICO -- GAVE THE 60,000 SPECTATORS A FINE DISPLAY OF ATTACKING FOOTBALL IN THE OPENING STAGES.

    ITALY DOMINATED PLAY FROM THE KICK-OFF. IN THE 11TH MINUTE THEIR SUPERIORITY PAID OFF WITH A WELL-TAKEN GOAL FROM CENTRE-FORWARD ANASTASI. HE BEAT A DEFENDER AND TAPPED THE BALL PAST THE HELPLESS SPANISH GOAL-KEEPER IRIBAR.

    SEVEN MINUTES LATER, OUTSIDE-RIGHT DOMENGHINI LOBBED THE BALL ACROSS THE GOALMOUTH TO RIVA, WHO SLAMMED A SHOT PAST IRIBAR TO INCREASE ITALY'S LEAD.

    THESE EARLY ITALIAN SUCCESSES BROUGHT OUT THE FIGHTING SPIRIT OF THE SPANIARDS. THE ITALIAN DEFENCE LOST ITS COMPOSURE IN THE FACE OF THE SUDDEN SPANISH PRESSURE. IN THE 23RD MINUTE, A FIERCE SHOT BY INSIDE-RIGHT AMANCIO BOUNCED OFF ITALIAN DEFENDER BURGNICH INTO THE NET TO REDUCE THE ARREARS.

    TWO MINUTES LATER, SPAIN DREW LEVEL THROUGH ANOTHER ITALIAN OWN-GOAL. THIS TIME LEFT-HALF SALVADORE DEFLECTED A SHOT BY SPANISH INSIDE-LEFT ARICTA INTO HIS OWN NET.

    THE SPANISH SIDE MAINTAINED THE INITIATIVE DURING THE GOALLESS SECOND HALF. BUT THIS TIME THE ITALIAN DEFENCE STOOD FIRM IN THE FACE OF REPEATED ATTACKS.
