    11, Asensio accelerates past his man and fizzes a cross into the six-yard box. It comes to Gavi who can't quite sort his feet out in time.

    You sense a big chance is coming.

    Jordan 0-0 Spain

    9, Spain continue to probe the Jordan defence. Ansu-Fati dances inside and the ball eventually makes its way to Arabia who fires one on target. But it's a simple save for Al Fakhouri in the sticks.

    5, Spain are playing some stylish football early on.

    Ansu-Fati rolls it through the defenders legs on the edge of the area before teeing up Sarabia, who's ball in is cleared away.

    Jordan in form

    The home side come into this game on a five game winning streak, not conceding a goal across those matches.

    Last month they defeated Oman, who pushed Germany to the very last minute yesterday.

    And in January they saw off New Zealand 3-1.

    So, despite being favourites, Spain might not have it all their own way today.
