Spain score injury-time winner to beat Georgia – amirablesblog.com

Striker Dani Olmo scored a stoppage-time winner as Spain edged past Georgia in 2022 World Cup qualifying Group B.

Spain, who have not lost a World Cup qualifying game in 28 years, were behind at half-time after Khvicha Kvaratskhelia fired Georgia ahead.

Manchester City’s Ferran Torres slid home Jordi Alba’s cross to equalise.

Alba was also credited with the assist for Olmo’s late long-range effort which gave the visitors a crucial win in front of 15,000 fans.

Georgia’s Levan Shengelia was then sent off moments before the final whistle.

Spain, who host Kosovo on Wednesday, drew their opening qualifier 1-1 at home to Greece.

Georgia visit Greece on Wednesday.
