Spain are through to next summer's World Cup finals following a 3-0 win over Estonia! After Bosnia could only draw with Turkey earlier in the evening, Vicente Del Bosque's side knew they would be sure of a place in South Africa if they could secure a victory. The visitors started well however, and there were a couple of scares early on. Torres went close a couple of times though, and with half an hour on the clock Cesc Fábregas made the break through after picking up a return pass from Silva.

That calmed the nerves a bit, although Estonia continued to put up a good fight after the restart. Finally with ten minutes to go Cazorla picked up a lofted pass from Fábregas to battle through and score the second, and the Villarreal midfielder combined with fellow substitute Mata in injury time for him to make it three. Spain will be in South Africa after an eighth win in eight games, and Del Bosque can now use the remaining two group matches to plan for the finals.
