Spain's under 21 side moved a step close to qualifying for the European finals after beating Serbia Montenegro 2-0. It wasn't all easy going though, and only some first class saves from Moyà kept the scores level early on. But the visitors were left with ten men when Todorovic was shown a second yellow card with just over half an hour gone, and Gabi and Llorente could both have scored before half time had Stojkovic not been at his best.

With a man extra, Iñaki Sáez decided to bring on Kepa to accompany Llorente up front, and twenty minutes into the second half the pressure paid off when Iniesta won himself a penalty and drove the spot kick past Stojkovic. And a few minutes later the Barcelona midfielder got his second of the night to wrap things up. The second goal also gave Spain a head-to-head advantage over their opponents, and a good result in Belgium next month should see them finish in the top two to secure a place in the elite round.
