Kepa Arrizabalaga 'surprised' to keep Spain place

Euro 2020 qualifying: Spain 3-0 Sweden

Spain swept Sweden aside easily at the Santiago Bernabeu, with second-half penalties from Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Morata added to by Alvaro Oyarzabal's fine strike as La Roja went five points clear in Group F.

"This is a small but important step towards qualifying".

After good saves to keep La Roja at bay in the first half, Ramos tucked home in the 64th minute from the penalty spot when Sebastian Larsson handled a Marco Asensio cross.

He is the national team's top scorer under coach Luis Enrique, who again was absent for personal reasons.

Mikel Oyarzabal's 87th-minute strike then sealed victory for Spain in Madrid as they recorded a maximum 12 points from four matches to remain five clear of Sweden and Romania at the top of Group F.

Spain bring a 4-match winning streak in all competitions into this fixture having accounted for the likes of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Norway, Malta and Faroe Islands - the latter three results being in these Euro 2020 qualifiers along with a friendly global win against Bosnia.

The captain was honored for the record before the match.

Spain scored another penalty in the 85th after Morata was brought down by Filip Helander inside the area.

However, Dhawan didn't take the field due to the injury and Ravindra Jadeja fielded in his place for the entire 50 overs.

Oyarzabal closed the scoring with a shot from inside the area in the 87th for his first global goal.

Meanwhile, in terms of the all-time appearance standings, Ramos is Spain's second-most capped player with 165 caps to his name, with Casilla the only player now lying above him (167).

In the early stages of the second half, Isco met an outswinging corner with a stunning volley that whistled just over the bar.

The Swedes also bring attacking threats of their own too in the shape of midfielder Claesson and forward Quaison (3 goals apiece) who have helped Sweden into one of the two automatic qualification places for next year's finals.

"We are very happy with the result because they close the lines down and we needed to really apply ourselves to win the game", Ramos said.

For the third straight game, Luis Enrique was absent and the team was led by assistant coach Robert Moreno. Local media reports said his absence is due to a problem with a family member.

And Moreno is hopeful his colleague can return to the dugout for Spain's next fixtures against Romania and the Faroe Islands in September.
