    • Liechtenstein
    • 90' There's the final whistle and Spain have run out comfortable winners as expected. Goals from Negredo (2), Xavi, Ramos and Villa (2) wrap up a 6-0 win in Logrones.
    • 84' Spain are playing at half speed here, you get the impression that they could score a seventh whenever they want, and they probably will before the final whistle
    • 82' Another change for the visitors as Martin Buchel is off and on comes Wolfgang Kieber
    • 79' GOAL FOR SPAIN!!! Villa gets his second and Spain's sixth of the night. A Xavi Alonso free-kick is swung in from the right all the way to the back post where Villa ghosted in unmarked to volley home, all too easy for the Barca man.
    • 72' The visitors making a change as Nicolas Hasler comes on to replace Sandro Wieser
    • 70' More good link-up between Villa and Mata as the former tees up the Chelsea man just inside the box but he side-foots his effort over the cross bar, should have done better really.
    • 67' David Villa does brilliantly as he cuts in from the left, skips past two men in the box and jsut had the keeper to beat but his low drive was well kept out by the feet of Jehle.
    • 65' Great stuff from Liechtenstein as a one-two on the edge of the area sees the captain Frick in on goal, his effort was well struck but far too close to Casillas who got down well and kept it out
    • 62' Off goes Alvaro Negredo and on comes local hero Fernando Llorente. They love him in the north of Spain.
    • 60' GOAL FOR SPAIN!!! David Villa gets Spain's fifth. Great pace and strength from Mata down the right to leave his man for dead and get to the bye-line, he picks out Villa 10 yards out in the penalty box, he takes one touch and slots it home. So easy for Spain.
    • 55' Off goes goal scorer Sergio Ramos and Thiago Alcantara joins the action
    • 52' GOAL FOR SPAIN!!! It is the less likely source of Sergio Ramos this time. He looked very offside as he got on the end of a Negredo flick-on from an Iniesta cross but the linesman gave nothing as he prodded home from close range. 4-0.
    • 46' Fabregas replaces Xavi at half-time and the second half gets underway in Logrono
    • 44' GOAL FOR SPAIN!! The hosts are awarded a free kick on the edge of the penalty area following a handball. Xavi steps up and curls it into the top left-hand corner, giving the keeper no chance at all. Great free kick from the midfield maestro.
    • 34' GOAL FOR SPAIN!! Superb goal. Iniesta does what he does best and finds Villa with an eye-of-the-needle ball. The Barca striker takes one touch before backheeling the ball into the path of the onrushing Negredo, who toe-pokes into the far corner.
    • 34' GOAL FOR SPAIN!!! The home side take the lead through Alvaro Negredo, it has seemed like only a matter of time and it is the Sevilla man who has opened the scoring
