World Cup Qualifiers: Spain Stays Top In Group G

David Silva and Diego Costa made sure Spain stayed in control of Group G despite enduring a nervy evening to their match in Macedonia. The visitors were made to sweat after Stefan Ristovski pulled one back.

Silva capped a vintage Spanish build-up with the opener and Costa tapped in Isco's cross before half-time but with chances going begging Spain were made to pay when, out of nothing, Ristovski burst from the halfway line and lashed in his first international goal.

Nevertheless, a 2-1 victory ensured Spain remain top of the group on goal difference, although Italy made inroads on that with a 5-0 win over Liechtenstein. Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne opened the scoring with a stunning strike, controlling Leonardo Spinazzola's pass before crashing a volley into the top corner. Insigne then teed up Andrea Belotti to tuck in the second seven minutes after the interval. Eder grabbed the third before substitutes Federico Bernardeschi and Manolo Gabbiadini completed the scoring.
