Spain's under 21 side virtually ensured themselves a place in the European championship play-offs after a convincing 5-0 win over Kazakhstan. Jurado opened the scoring in the tenth minute after good work by Bojan down the right wing, and Diego Capel made it two a few minutes later after picking up a pass from Mata.
And by half time they had two more, Mata setting up Bojan for him to score a with a spectacular overhead kick, and then getting the fourth himself after intercepting a poor clearance from Shabanov.
Iñaki Saez decided to change his front two at the break, giving a run out to debutants Kike Sola and José María Callejón, a late call up due to the injury to Granero. And Callejón completed the rout, beating the keeper at the second attempt from Capel's cross later in the second half.
Roberto did have one save to make from Borovskiy, but the youngsters could have got more, Shabanov saving from Capel and Sisi and Callejón and Piqué putting late chances over the top.
Spain have won all five of their games with a 15-0 aggregate, and only Russia now stand in the way of them and first place in the group.
