Great debut for Julen Lopetegui with the Spanish national team 

Julen Lopetegui's first match as the Spanish national coach. Spain beat Belgium 2-0 and offered a great performance away from home with Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba in the line-up. The three Barcelona players completed the full match. Paco Alcacer was in the bench and didn't have any minutes.

The man of the match was David Silva, who scored both goals for Spain. He's clearly improving his game under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. 

It was a great debut for Lopetegui. Spain played much better than Belgium, that received even whistles from their own fans at the end of the match. It was also the debut from the Spaniard Roberto Martínez as the Belgium national manager.
