Melanie, Ruth, Alexia, Jenni, Marta Torrejón, Leire and Olga feature in 2-0 defeat of Portugal in Badajoz

Spain have maintained their 100 per cent record in Euro 2017 qualifying with a 2-0 defeat of Portugal on Tuesday. Melanie, Ruth, Alexia, Jenni and Marta Torrejón of FC Barcelona all started tonight’s game in Badajoz, while Leire and Olga both came on in the second half, meaning the only unused FCB member of the squad was goalkeeper Sandra Paños.

The side coached by Jorge Vilda got off to an early lead with goals from two former Barça players, Vicky Losada (8) and Sonia Bermúdez(min 25) and held on to that lead to make it nine points out of nine so far in group play. Next up is Montenegro on January 24.
