- FYR Macedonia 1 – 2 Spain
Spain stayed in control of Group G despite enduring a nervy evening to their match in Macedonia.
David Silva and Diego Costa were on target but the visitors were made to sweat after Stefan Ristovski pulled one back.
Silva capped a vintage Spanish build-up with the opener and Costa tapped in Isco’s cross before half-time.
But with chances going begging Spain were made to pay when, out of nothing, Ristovski burst from the halfway line and lashed in his first international goal.
Nevertheless, a 2-1 victory ensured Spain remain top of the group on goal difference
