England triumph in Spain
 Women's Football News 25 Oct 2016
Spain 1 (Torrejon 19) England 2 (Torrejon og 14, Houghton 17)
A deflected Karen Carney cross and a Steph Houghton free kick helped England defeat Spain in their second Euro 2017 warm up match. 
There was one change from Friday's 0-0 draw with France as Manchester City forward Nikita Parris replaced Rachel Daly up front. Meanwhile, Birmingham City goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley was named on the bench for the first time following her late call up on Sunday.
The visitors made a bright start in Guadalajara with City duo Demi Stokes and Jill Scott registering early attempts at goal; the former forcing a save out of Spain goalkeeper Dolores Gallardo.
All of a sudden the game sprang into life as a neat interchange between Stokes and Jordan Nobbs saw Carney weave her way into the left side of the Spain box and chip a ball into the centre.
Torrejon arrived at the near post to clear the danger but only succeeded in inadvertently deflecting the ball over Gallardo and into the far corner to give the Lionesses the lead just before the quarter hour mark.
Three minutes later it was 2-0, as Andrea Pereira was penalised, and booked, for a trip on Parris 20 yards from the Spain goal. Houghton stepped up and curled a beautiful free-kick over the wall and into the bottom left-hand corner.
Not to be outdone, though, the opposing skipper hauled her side right back into proceedings with a set piece of her own after Jade Moore was cautioned for a foul on Jennifer Hermoso. Torrejon whipped her free kick beyond Karen Bardsley and into the top right hand corner.
After that crazy goal spree, it was perhaps understandable that there was a lull in proceedings for the remainder of the first half, with Nobbs's rushed volley from close range the only real opportunity of note thereafter.
Parris had a half chance shortly after the restart when Spain failed to clear their lines but the ball came to her quickly and substitute keeper Sandra Panos saved the header.
A raft of second half subs affected the game's flow somewhat, though Toni Duggan, on for Parris, did test Panos immediately after coming on, and Daly, on for Gemma Davison, flashed a tempting centre across the box which was just beyond Carney's reach.
Sampson's charges largely restricted their hosts to long range efforts and although Amanda Sampedro and Hermoso obliged, neither shot troubled Bardsley.
Nobbs tried her luck from distance, too, and her sweetly struck 25-yarder had Panos beaten, only for the ball to smash against the angle of post and bar.
But Spain twice came close to equalising in added time, when a Vicky Losada volley was headed away bravely by Moore and then Bardsley did well to claw Mari Paz Vilas's header away from the far corner.
Spain: Dolores Gallardo (sub Sandra Panos 45mins), Leila Ouahabi, Andrea Pereira (sub Alexandra Lopez 74mins), Virginia Torrecilla (sub Barbara Latorre 45mins), Marta Torrejon, Jennifer Hermoso (sub Mari Paz Vilas 64mins), Alexia Putellas (sub Marta Corredera 64mins), Vicky Losada, Silvia Meseguer, Amanda Sampedro, Irene Paredas. Subs not used: Ivana Andreas, Veronica Boquete.

England: Karen Bardsley, Lucy Bronze, Demi Stokes, Jade Moore, Steph Houghton, Jo Potter, Jill Scott (sub Isobel Christiansen 64mins), Jordan Nobbs, Nikita Parris (sub Toni Duggan 64mins), Karen Carney (sub Fara Williams 74mins), Gemma Davison (sub Rachel Daly 58mins). Subs not used: Alex Scott, Mary Earps, Laura Bassett, Casey Stoney, Millie Bright, Sophie Baggaley, Danielle Carter.
