Spain vs Georgia: live stream, start time, TV info and more


This is a UEFA World Cup qualifying match between Spain and Georgia. Spain pretty much has this group in the bag if they can walk away with at least a draw, easily do-able against Georgia. They sit three points ahead of France in the table.

For Andres Iniesta it is a homecoming of sorts, he was born in the region and played at Albacete before joining Barcelona.

It’s a special game for me because I’m from here, but we are playing for World Cup qualification and the focus must be 100 per cent on playing well, having a good game, and getting the victory.”

“When I found out the game was going to be here I felt an immense joy to be able to be here today. From now until tomorrow’s match finishes the emotions will be very strong. I hope the fans really enjoy watching the national team because they aren’t always here and that we can secure our qualification. It will be nice.”
