Williams' first action was a low cross but Olmo just failed to reach, and his second set up Morata to drag across goal from a narrow angle.

Suddenly Williams and Morata were finding some spaces, but it was Olmo, who nearly killed the match in 90 minutes with a curling free kick that Bono punched away at full stretch.

Williams and Morata carried Spain's threat in extra time, but the best chance fell to Morocco with Simon saving from Walid Cheddira with his feet. If Sarabia had his shooting boots on, he would have won it for Spain with the last kick of the game.

Morata had a chance too, but opted to pass rather than to shoot - and that showcased Spain's problems: control, but no potency.
