Vincente del Bosque got no goals from Michu but saw an accomplished defensive showing from Chico Flores as Swansea claimed a creditable goalless draw at Everton.
The Spain manager, at Goodison Park to run the rule over Swansea's quartet of Spaniards, saw two sides cancel each other out in a tight Barclays Premier League battle. The in-form Michu went the closest of two hard-working sides to scoring when he forced Tim Howard to tip a shot onto the bar in the first half.
Everton had the better of the second period but Flores and partner Ashley Williams were solid and while Marouane Fellaini forced a late save from Michel Vorm, referee Phil Dowd had spotted an infringement.
