Euro 2008 qualifier

Spain 1 - Northern Ireland 0

Spain beat Northern Ireland in their last match to finish top of their group and deprive their opponents of a place in the finals. Having already qualified after the win against Sweden on Saturday, Luis Aragonés used the occasion to try out some of his lesser used players. And although his side were on top for much of the match, they were unable to break through until early in the second half, when Craigan got a head to Xavi's long shot only to deflect it past Taylor into his own net.
