Michu fails to score in front of Spain coach
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -Michu failed to add to his impressive Premier League goal tally in front of Spain coach Vicente del Bosque as Swansea drew 0-0 at Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Del Bosque traveled to Liverpool to run his eye over the uncapped Michu, who has scored 13 league goals in a superb first season in English football, ahead of Spain's friendly against Uruguay on Feb. 6.
Michu saw a deft chip tipped onto the crossbar by goalkeeper Tim Howard but was otherwise kept quiet in a game Everton dominated but lacked a cutting edge to match its build-up play.
Victor Anichebe, Nikica Jelavic and Phil Neville were all denied by Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm as fifth-place Everton dropped two points in the quest for a Champions league qualification spot.
