Spain took just six minutes to open the scoring with Andres Iniesta finding Rodrigo with a glorious ball and the striker expertly applied the finish.

It was a cakewalk for Brazil in Moscow as Tite's men were comprehensively victorious 3-0 against the upcoming hosts of the World Cup Russia.

Thomas Muller leveled it up for the Germans courtesy of a stunning strike.

"We'll need to play well, Spain stands for a certain type of football - a mix of Real and Barca".

"If we were to play Spain at the World Cup, it would be a very different game and we know they are a top team in every respect".

The 33-year-old outplayed Germany midfielders Sami Khedira and Toni Kroos by producing countless silky passes at the heart of Spain's attack.

La Roja almost got a second goal after a string of delightful passes played in David Silva, but his momentum took him past the ball and he was unable to properly control.

De Gea had no chance to save that, but Germany found the Manchester United keeper unbeatable otherwise.

The last time the Yankees played overseas was in 2004, when they faced the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in Tokyo in a two-game series. Major League Baseball is playing regular-season games in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Monterrey, Mexico, this year.

The Mannschaft were ferocious to start the second half and a blast by Julian Draxler forced a big save from De Gea as the match turned into a dual between two of the world's best goalkeepers.

The hosts continued to pose the greater goalscorer threat, however, and Werner went close again before Hummels sent a 65th-minute header crashing against the crossbar from Kroos' cross.

There is also a start at right-back for Joshua Kimmich who has impressed at Bayern this season, ensuring both club and country have not missed the presence of Philipp Lahm.

Five-time world champions Brazil showed no signs of missing Neymar as they fine-tuned preparations for this year's World Cup with a confident 3-0 victory over tournament hosts Russian Federation on Friday.

Joao Miranda scored the opener in the 53rd minute, while Phillipe Coutinho made it 2-0 from the spot.

"We were playing against the best team in the world now, a team with a lot of motivation and we've felt it".

"They were able to run, and when they can run they are more unsafe, but we had chances to score the second goal".

"There are things to improve, but we know how good Germany are", he explained.
