Under 21 Euro qualifiers

Russia 1 - Spain 2

Spain's under 21 side are virtually sure of a place in next summer's European finals after a 1-2 victory against their closest rivals, Russia. Xisco started things off early on after running on to a pass from Granero to beat the local keeper, and Jurado got the second, again after an assist from the Getafe winger. Dmitry Kombarov got one back after the restart, but any hopes of a Russian comeback ended when Granat and Kombarov's brother Kiryl were sent off late on. (20.08.08)
