Euro 2008 qualifier

Spain 3 - Sweden 0

Spain have qualified for the Euro 2008 finals with one match still to go after beating Sweden 3-0. Capdevila gave Luis Aragonés's side an early lead when he turned the ball past Isaksson after Cesc headed on Xavi's corner, and Villa hit the post with a free kick before Iniesta latched on to Capdevila's pass to score his team's second shortly before half time. The Scandinavian side hardly troubled Casillas all night, and Sergio Ramos wrapped things up midway through the second half, firing the ball back in to the net on the follow up after Wilhelmsson blocked Capdevila's shot after another Xavi corner. The win takes Spain above their opponents to the top of group F, and they can now take on Northern Ireland in Las Palmas next Wednesday knowing that their place in Austria / Switzerland is assured.
