Watch: Rare David De Gea Howler Gifts Switzerland Goal

Spain's preparations for the World Cup saw them face Switzerland today, in a game that saw a rare mistake from David De Gea gift AC Milan defender Ricardo Rodríguez a goal.

Spain took an early lead when Álvaro Odriozola scored midway through the first half, but Switzerland pulled one back on the hour mark. The Manchester United shot-stopper seemed to have a Stephan Lichtsteiner shot covered with a routine dive to his left but spilled the ball at Rodríguez's feet.

The game finished 1-1. De Gea had been in outstanding form for his club this season and it is unlikely the error will concern Julen Lopetegui too much, who was a goalkeeper himself during his playing career. His country are in group B this summer, along with Portugal, Morocco and Iran.
