Spain Stay Perfect After Romania Win


Spain maintained their 100 per cent record in Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 2-1 away win over Romania in Group F.

Real Madrid ace Sergio Ramos' 10th penalty for his country opened the scoring for Spain in Bucharest on Thursday, with Borussia Dortmund striker Paco Alcacer adding Spain's second goal early in the second half.

The Euro 2012 winners had to survive a fightback with substitute Florin Andone scored his first Romania goal since 2015, but the hosts could not find an equaliser despite Diego Llorente's late red card.

La Roja's victory came in their first game since Robert Moreno was confirmed as coach on a permanent basis after Luis Enrique stepped down, the former Barcelona boss last week revealing his nine-year-old daughter, Xana, has died from bone cancer.
