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
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.
