A big win for Spain in their last group match, and all eyes are now on Friday's play-off draw. With top spot in the group already in the bag, the new coach was able to make several changes to the line-up which drew with Switzerland last Thursday. The new combination gelled perfectly though, and all four of the front players got their names on the scoresheet in the first half hour. Montoya added a fifth before the break, and Alvaro rounded things off with his second goal of the evening later on.
