    Torres (Spain) scores!
    With four minutes to go it looks like Spain have sealed the three points as Fernando Torres finds the net for only the second time in the qualifying campaign. The Liverpool FC striker turns in the rebound after Miguel Ángel Angulo's shot from Andrés Iniesta's cutback was saved by Andris Vanins. Victory for Spain would lift them alongside Sweden at the head of Group F.
