Austria 1 - Spain 5

Spain continue to re-write the record books after a 1-5 win against Austria on Wednesday. Returning to the scene of their 2008 European Championship triumph, Del Bosque's side produced another exhibition of their electrifying football. For a couple of minutes they were behind after Jantschner's shot took a deflection off Sergio Ramos, but Fábregas caught the defence napping to equalise almost immediately. David Villa made it two after Iniesta found a gap, and the locals were left with ten men a few minutes later after Pehlivan was sent off. Shortly before half time Villa got his second of the night after another assist from Silva, and substitutes Güiza and Pablo Hernández added two more soon after the break. (18.11.09)
