Roberto Martinez’s reign as Belgium manager started with a defeat, as fellow coaching debutant Julen Lopetegui’s Spain downed the Red Devils 2-0.
Martinez, assisted by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, could only watch on as David Silva scored the opening goal of the game in the first-half, netting past Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois in the friendly at the King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels.
Belgium, who were struggling to contain the Spanish for the majority of the game, only held off the second goal due to some impressive defending, but the resistance was finally broken again in the second period – Silva converting from the penalty spot.
Certainly not the debut Martinez had in mind..
