FIFA World Cup: Before farewell tie, pitch ruins Spain and Australia's training
Curitiba: Australia and deposed holders Spain's preparations for their final and farewell Group B match tomorrow were disrupted due to the bad state of the Arena da Baixada pitch yesterday.
The venue hosted Nigeria's 0-0 draw with Iran and Ecuador's 2-1 win over Honduras, and Australia manager Ange Postecoglou said: "The pitch hasn't recovered from the last game, it's not ideal to train on."
