Spain needed a passing blunder by Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer to secure a 1-0 win and keep the lead of its Nations League group on Saturday.
Sommer got flustered by Spain's pressure and played the ball past his teammate and directly to Mikel Merino, who set up Real Sociedad team-mate Mikel Oyarzabal to score the game's only goal in the 14th minute.
Where Sommer let his team down, David de Gea rescued Spain.

Switzerland's only scoring opportunity came before Oyarzabal's goal. Silvan Widmer got free on a counterattack and his pass across the area reached fellow wing back Loris Benito arriving alone on the left side.
De Gea, however, made a great one-handed save to parry Benito's powerful strike.
