WATCH: Alvaro Morata gives Spain an early lead against Japan

Spain have got off to the perfect start in their final Group E match against Japan as they look to keep hold of top spot.

The opening exchanges had been fairly even with La Roja enjoying a lot of possession without looking too threatening.

However, Gavi’s initial cross was cleared as far as Cesar Azpilicueta. The veteran delivered an inch-perfect cross for Alvaro Morata, and he headed home from six-yards out to opening the scoring.

That goal is Morata’s third in three games at this year’s World Cup, taking his joint top of the scoring charts.
