Portugal draw with Spain, Mexico beat Dutch

LISBON: Portugal had to settle for a 0-0 draw at home to Spain in a heavyweight friendly yesterday after hammering the crossbar twice and missing a last-gasp open goal. Cristiano Ronaldo almost gave the European champions the lead when he sent a shot crashing against the underside of the bar early in the second half. Olivier Giroud became France’s second top scorer when he netted a double to take his international tally to 42 goals as the world champions crushed an injury and Covid-19-ravaged Ukraine 7-1. It was Giroud’s 100th cap. Mexico handed new Netherlands coach Frank de Boer a defeat in his first game in charge as they enjoyed a deserved 1-0 win. Germany midfielder Florian Neuhaus scored on his national team debut but Turkey came back three times to earn a 3-3 draw. Reuters
