Xabi Alonso scores on 100th appearance
Spain (Xabi Alonso, 19 mins) 1-0 France
What was I saying? Spain attack down the left this time, Andres Iniesta frees Jordi Alba who does brilliantly to beat his man and stand up a teasing cross to the back post where Xabi Alonso arrives like a modern day David Platt to plant a header back across goal and into the net. Lovely goal
PENALTY TO SPAIN
Something happens as Pedro turns his man delightfuly and Anthony Reveillere bundles him over.
Spain (Xabi Alonso, 90 mins) 2-0 France
He doesn’t miss those. Fabulous penalty from Xabi Alonso, sweeping the ball into the corner.
