Santi Cazorla got himself on the scoresheet for Spain this past Friday night, grabbing the second goal in his side’s 2-0 win over England.
There was over 70 minutes of goalless action in Alicante before Mario Gaspar opened the scoring, a goal which would have been enough to win the game. 12 minutes later Cazorla grabbed the goal that really sealed the game though, passing the ball past Joe Hart to make it 2-0.
England defended sloppily for the second goal, with Kyle Walker’s laziness keeping two Spanish players onside. Cazorla was set up in plenty of space, and he was able to slide it first time into the bottom corner.
Check out the goal below:
Cazorla has understandably found goals hard to come by for Arsenal this season, as he’s been deployed in a deeper role in midfield more often than not. He’s arguably been more important to our success in his new position though, and has thrived alongside Francis Coquelin.

Chipping in with a few more goals wouldn’t hurt though, and passing the ball into the net rather than lashing it goalwards seems like the way forward for the diminutive magician.
