Spain secured their place at Euro 2016 with a comfortable 4-0 win over Luxembourg on Friday night as Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla scored twice including this well-taken strike.
La Roja suffered with injury setbacks early on as they lost both David Silva and Alvaro Morata, but after a stuttering start they were able to find their rhythm and run out comfortable winners.
Cazorla found the net twice on the night, as did Paco Alcacer, as Vicente Del Bosque’s men secured their spot at the top of Group C with eight wins and a solitary defeat from their nine games so far in the qualifying campaign.

Chelsea fans will have also taken an interest in the clash as Pedro’s work in the build-up to the opening goal of the game presented Cazorla with a great opportunity to find the net, while Cesc Fabregas provided an assist on the second.
Despite doubts over their credentials, particularly after their disappointing exit at the 2014 World Cup, Spain will be desperate to return to their previous level of domination and defend their European title next summer.
On the basis of this performance, Del Bosque still has work to do, but they will be delighted to have topped their group and avoided any late drama in their bid to qualify.
