Callosa del Segura. Spain got off to a good start in the Elite round of the European qualifiers, beating Sweden comprehensively in their opening match. The youngsters dominated from the start, with Sevilla's Diego Capel particularly active, but it was not until shortly before half time that Manchester United's Piqué headed the opening goal from Esteban Granero's corner.

Espanyol's Marc Pedraza scored the second from close range midway through the second half, and Albacete's César Díaz cut in to get a third before Pedraza rounded things off in the closing minutes.

Germany beat Spain's next opponents Cyprus 6-0 in the other group game, and it looks like everything will go down to the last tie, when Spain meet Germany in Torrevieja on Tuesday evening.
