Negredo delighted with win

Alvaro Negredo has admitted that he was delighted to get the three points against Finland as Spain claimed a 2-0 win.

Jordi Alba and the Manchester City forward scored the goals that gave La Roja the win to take them a step closer to the World Cup.

And the striker has admitted that it was a relief after the two sides drew in the first match last year.

“We desperately wanted to kill the game off,” he told reporters.

“We did not want a repeat of what happened in the first match.

“We’re delighted it didn’t. This is a very important step for us.”
