Euro 2008 qualifier

Spain 4 - Liechtenstein 0

A comfortable win for Spain in their opening European qualifying match, a 4-0 victory against Liechtenstein taking them to the top of their group. Raúl and David Villa combined down the left wing to set up Fernando Torres for the opening goal in the twentieth minute, and Villa added the second himself on the stroke of half time after Xabi Alonso had won the ball in midfield. Villa made it three with a low free kick with just over an hour on the clock, and substitute Luis García came on to get a fourth after controlling Pernía's cross just three minutes later. (02.09.06)
