Spain topped their group in brilliant fashion after beating Yugoslavia 5-1 in their last group match. Both teams came in to this game with maximum points from their first two fixtures, and the East Europeans were expected to put up a strong fight. However they were no match for Juan Santiesteban's side, who went in front with a strong shot from their top scorer Jonathan past keeper Baletic. Gavilán made it two with half an hour gone, and a minute later Jonathan scored his seventh of the tournament after a fantastic move involving most of the team. Spain added two more goals after the break from Corominas and David Rodríguez to complete the humiliation of their opponents, who did at least get a consolation goal in the last minute from Lecic. Both teams qualify for the quarter finals, with Yugoslavia playing England and Spain taking on hosts Denmark next Saturday afternoon. (01.05.02)
