World Cup 2010 Qualifying match

Bosnia-Herzegovina 2 - Spain 5

Spain completed the group stage with maximum points after beating Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-5 in the last match. A Piqué header and a shot from Silva put Del Bosque's side two up with less than a quarter of an hour gone. With Villa, Güiza, Torres and Llorente all injured, new boy Negredo started at centre forward, and the Sevilla striker added two more early in the second half. And substitute Mata made it five before the hosts pulled back two late goals, the unfortunate Iraola twice deflecting shots from Dzeko and Misimovic past Casillas in the last three minutes. (14.10.09)
