Spain lacked precision against Finland: Sergio Ramos

Gijon: Sergio Ramos feels Spain were in complete control in Friday`s World Cup qualifier against Finland, but were made to rue their lack of precision in front of goal, as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

The Real Madrid defender broke the deadlock shortly after the break, but Teemu Pukki restored parity in the 79th minute to help Finland to a hard-fought draw.

"Looking at the result, it`s a real pity, especially after I celebrated my 100th cap with a goal," he was quoted as saying.

"We completely controlled that game but ultimately let it out of our grasp. We are not happy. We just weren`t precise enough when it came to finishing Finland off."

The defender then looked ahead to Tuesday`s match away against France, and is confident Spain can emerge victorious.

"We will be facing a great team on Tuesday but we can beat them and it`s that mentality we`ll take there."

Spain are currently trailing France by two points in Group I.
