Spain completed the formalities in their Elite round qualifying group, beating hosts Armenia 2-4 in the last match to finish top of the table with maximum points. Already assured of first place, Ginés Meléndez used the occasion to try out his reserve players. But they were caught out early on, the locals taking a two goal lead after Voskanyan and Gyozalyan both beat Real Madrid keeper Mejías.
Racing's Iván Bolado got one back though on the stroke of half time, and the youngsters drew level when Antonyan put through his own net just four minutes after the restart.
It was not until the final minutes that they were able to win the match however, Arsenal's Fran Mérida (currently on loan at Real Sociedad) scoring twice in the last five minutes to keep up his side's 100% record, the first with a shot from outside of the area and the second with a well struck free kick. Spain now go on to defend their title in the Czech Republic in July.
