Euro 2016: England, Spain get qualifying wins
Wayne Rooney and Isco were the stars of the night as both England and Spain won.
LONDON - Wayne Rooney celebrated his 100th England cap by scoring a penalty to lead his team to a 3-1 win over Slovenia in a Euro 2016 Group E qualifier at Wembley on Saturday which only came to life after halftime.
The England skipper scored with a thunderous spot-kick after 59 minutes having been fouled by Slovenia captain Bostjan Cesar to move level with Jimmy Greaves as his country's joint-third highest scorer on 44 goals.
He is now just five goals behind Bobby Charlton's all-time record of 49 England goals.
Rooney's equaliser came two minutes after Slovenia took the lead when Milivoje Novakovic whipped in a free kick and Jordan Henderson sent a header flying past Joe Hart for an own goal.
England secured victory with two goals from Danny Welbeck who struck after 66 minutes with a scrappy left-foot shot before making it 3-1 six minutes later after fine build-up play culminated in a superb one-two with Raheem Sterling. He has now scored five times in his last four England appearances.
The victory maintained England's perfect start to the campaign and they head the standings with 12 points from their opening four matches.
ISCO STUNNER BOOSTS SPAIN
Real Madrid midfielder Isco scored his first international goal to help Spain beat Belarus 3-0 in their Group C qualifiers.
The stunning 18 minute opening goal was an explosive shot which curled into the top corner.
The Spaniards dominated the match as Sergio Busquets adding a second and Pedro netting a beautiful goal after some excellent work from Juanfran.
The result leaves Spain level on nine points with Ukraine in Group C which Slovakia top with 12 points.
Macedonia are in fourth with 3 points while Belarus and Luxembourg are at the bottom without wins.
