A late equaliser from Ricardo Horta gave Portugal a share of the spoils as they drew 1-1 with Spain in their Nations League clash in Seville.

Alvaro Morata put the home side in front after 25 minutes, finishing off a sweeping counter-attack started in the centre circle by Bernardo Silva on Thursday.

Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench for the visitors shortly after the hour mark but it was fellow substitute Goncalo Guedes who supplied the low cross for Horta to fire in the equaliser with eight minutes remaining.

In the other game in group A2, Jan Kuchta and a 58th-minute own goal from Djibril Sow saw the Czech Republic beat Switzerland 2-1, Noah Okafor having cancelled out Kuchta's opener just before half-time.

Israel and Iceland played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in group B2, Celtic's Liel Abada giving Israel the lead before goals from Thorir Johann Helgason and Arnor Sigurdsson looked to have secured all three points for the visitors.

But substitute Shon Weissman had other ideas and equalised for the home side six minutes from the end.

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland scored the only goal in the 26th minute as Norway won 1-0 in Serbia, with Sweden also winning away from home in group B4 thanks to a penalty from captain Emil Forsberg and a late goal from Tottenham's Dejan Kulusevski in Slovenia.

There were also two away wins in group C2 as Kosovo beat Cyprus 2-0 and Greece defeated Northern Ireland 1-0, captain Tasos Bakasetas scoring the only goal late in the first half at Windsor Park.

Georgia enjoyed the biggest win of the evening as they beat Gibraltar 4-0, with Bulgaria and North Macedonia drawing 1-1 and Estonia beating San Marino 2-0.
