Italy script Spain’s first loss since World Cup win


Spain suffered their first defeat since August’s World Cup triumph as Italy edged them 3-2 in the Women’s Nations League A in Pontevedra on Friday.

Italy weathered a late Esther Gonzalez strike to end Spain’s eight-match winning streak.

Italy have equalled second-placed Sweden at seven points from five games in a race to avoid a relegation play-off.

Sweden will visit Spain on Dec. 5 while Italy will host already-relegated Switzerland in their last group fixtures.
