  • GOAAALLLLL - SPAIN 1-0 GEORGIA - Gaya opens the scoring, and the left-back can consider himself a little fortunate. The goal came from a Spain corner, with Georgia thinking they had done enough after the original clearance. The ball fell to Gaya, who smashed his shot back towards goal, Kashia tried to block his effort, but the ball deflects off his leg and beats Loria in the Georgia goal.

  • GOAAAALLLL - SPAIN 2-0 GEORGIA - Luis Enrique's men double their lead thanks to a fine team move. The home side worked their way into space down the right-hand side, before Llorente's cutback missed two players at the near post, and Soler was on hand to fire into the roof of the net.

  • GOAAAALLLL - SPAIN 3-0 GEORGIA - Ferran Torres gets in on the act, and Loria has had a mare with that strike. A low cross from the right-wing took a deflection before Torres pounced, but his tame effort should have been saved. Instead, Loria has dived over the ball, and Torres' strike has found the back of the net.

  • GOAAALL - SPAIN 4-0 GEORGIA - Sarabia punishes Georgia as they fail to build on Simon's blunder from the resulting set-piece, and before they know it, they are four down. Spain's forwards burst into life, with Fornals charging into the box before playing in Sarabia, who waited for the keeper to commit himself before curling his shot into the opposite corner.
