Spain wrapped up their successful Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 5-0 win against Romania.

Fabian Ruiz gave the three-times European champions an early lead with a close-range finish before Gerard Moreno flicked home Santi Cazorla's cross.

Moreno side-footed in his second of the game before Adrian Rus turned the ball into his own net to make it 4-0 before half-time.

Mikel Oyarzabal swept in a fifth deep in stoppage time to complete the win.

Spain topped Group F with 26 points after winning eight and drawing two of their 10 games.

Sweden, who like Spain had already secured their place at Euro 2020 before the final round of fixtures, finished as runners-up on 21 points.
