Turkey 1 - Spain 2

Spain extended their unbeaten run to 31 games after a last minute 1-2 win over Turkey.

The home side took the lead against the run of play when Sentürk turned in Tuncay's pass in the twenty-fifth minute. But Xabi Alonso equalised from the penalty spot after Uzulmez blocked a Torres header midway through the second half, and Riera won it for Del Bosque's side after turning in Güiza's cross in injury time.

Spain top the group with six wins out of six, and Turkey are now four points adrift of Bosnia in third place after the East Europeans beat Belgium for the second time in four days. (01.04.09)
