    Ovchinnikov (Russia) makes a save.
    A fine save from a low free-kick. The goalkeeper parries the ball out but no Spanish forward is on hand to reach the rebound. With four minutes of stoppage-time still to play, Russia need to throw caution to the wind if they have hopes of equalising.

    A wonderful piece of skill by Torres ends with the dismissal of Sharonov for a second yellow card. Torres knocks the ball through Sharonov's legs and is brought down as he bears down on goal. With Russia already two centre-backs short, Sharonov's suspension for the next game will cause them a problem.

    Valerón (Spain) scores!
    Great composure from the substitute who controls Puyol's low cross with his right foot, dummies his marker Smertin and rifles a left-foot finish calmly past Ovchinnikov from eight metres out for the opening goal. What an impact from the playmaker - with his first touch of the ball.
