Raul scores as Spain beat Egypt

Spain defeated Egypt 2-0 in an international friendly on Saturdays, with goals from strikers Raul and Reyes.

Raul was visibly relieved when opening the score for the home side in the 14th minute. The Real Madrid forward had not scored for the national side since October and pressure was starting to mount.

Arsenal's José Antonio Reyes added a second goal in the 56th minute, and 2-0 would also be the final score in Elche, near the town of Alicante.

The African champions did manage to create some chances but goalkeeper Iker Casillas looked stable and kept a clean sheet.
