Vicente del Bosque has claimed his Spain side played 'very well' as they beat France 1-0 on Tuesday evening.
Pedro bundled home in the second half to give La Roja the three points that take them above Didier Deschamps' team in Group I.
“We have earned some important points,” he told Telecino. “This win makes the play-offs mathematically certain.
“You always come to a place like this with doubts, but we have got an important result.
“We played very well. We were a bit messy when they went down to 10 men and that almost cost us.
“But everyone did really well. Arbeloa was fantastic against Ribery. All the players had a great game.”
