The match was a one way affair & Spain could have scored more goals, thus not much really to add except that the goal scorers tonight were NEGREDO with two ( 32nd & 37th ), XAVI HERNANDEZ with a superb free-kick in the 43rd min, SERGIO RAMOS in the 52nd & DAVID VILLA with two ( 60th & 79th min)

However, their were highlights & important moments. FC Barcelona player & International midfielder XAVI HERNANDEZ notched up his 103 rd International Cap to make him Spain´s third most capped player behind Iker Casillas ( 124 ) & Andoni Zubizarreta ( 126 ) . The other moment came in the 55th min when Sergio Ramos was substituted for Barça youngster THIAGO. This eliminates any possibility of the player ever playing for Brazil as he has decided to "pledge Football allegiance" to Spain.

Great night of Spanish Football with lots of goals & milestones. The people of Logroño ( La Rioja ; Spain) packed out the stadium & went home happy as did the rest of the country.
