Ferran Torres on target in Spain’s victory over Albania

Bestinau got that-

Ferran Torres continued his good form for Spain on Saturday when he took a 2-1 win over Albania against Luis Enrique at the RCDE stadium.

The January signing kicked off the match alongside Barcelona teammates Eric Garcia and Pedri and played the entire 90 minutes of the friendly.

Gavi was also in the starting line-up, but was replaced just after the hour, while Jordi Alba came on for the last 30 minutes.

Spain dominated the game, but had to wait until the 75th minute for Torres to break the deadlock. The attacker snapped at a pass from Yeremi Pino and squeezed the ball past the goalkeeper.

Albania somehow managed to bizarrely equalize 10 minutes later with their first attempt on goal. A hopeful forward saw Pau Torres head the ball, which hit Uzuni and rolled into the back of the net.

Spain appeared to be held to a draw, but managed to grab a winner in the 90th minute. Pedri and Alba combined excellently to find Dani Olmo in the penalty area. The RB Leipzig man then turned and curled a brilliant effort into the top corner to secure a late win.
