Spain scored a stoppage-time equaliser as they drew 1-1 with Germany in the Nations League.

Timo Werner opened the scoring for the Germans in the 54th minute. However, Spain levelled things up in the 95th minute through Valencia left-back Jose Luis Gaya.

David de Gea, who has been subject to increasing criticism for his performances for Manchester United in recent months, also played a key role to earn La Roja a point in Stuttgart, as he made a number of fantastic saves to keep his side in the game.

Fans took notice of the performance and stormed Twitter with their reactions.

Luis Enrique also praised the 29-year-old and compared his situation with Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

“He [De Gea] has played a lot of games like this in England,” the Spain manager said post-match.

“We monitor him exhaustively, but he and Kepa are in the news if they make a mistake. They’re used to it. With the game he’s played we should be saying what a great goalkeeper we have.

“I’ll encourage them to not fall apart and it’s a position that I demand a lot from. But because the press give them such a hard time, I treat them more affectionately. They both know that their mistakes are more noticeable than those of other players, but they’re used to it.”
