Euro 2008 qualifier

Denmark 1 - Spain 3

An impressive 1-3 victory in Denmark left Spain with one foot in the Euro 2008 finals. Injuries to Villa and Torres meant that Tamudo started up front, and the Espanyol striker proved his worth when he headed Iniesta's cross past Sorensen with a quarter of an hour gone. And with five minutes to go to the break, Sergio Ramos finished off a marathon passing move to make it two. Casillas had to make two or three vital saves, and Bendtner hit the post before Tomasson got one back for the Scandinavian side with two minutes to go. But almost immediately debutant Riera picked up a loose ball on the edge of the area and crashed a shot into the net to wrap things up. Spain and Sweden are now six points clear of their nearest rivals, and only a major turnover will prevent them both from going through. (13.10.07)
