Slovakia 1-1 Spain
Raul of Spain and Martin Skrtel from Slovakia
Spain coasted through to the World Cup finals in 2006 after drawing with Slovakia in their second-leg play-off.

Luis Aragones' side had established a commanding 5-1 first-leg lead and Slovakia never really looked like clawing back that daunting deficit.

Five minutes into the second half Filip Holosko side-footed home to briefly give Slovakia hope of causing an upset.

But on 71 minutes substitute David Villa restored Spain's four-goal aggregate lead with a crisp shot.

Subs Not Used: Kelemen, Petras, Valachovic, Reiter.

Booked: Durica.

Goals: Holosko 50.

Spain: Casillas, Pablo, Antonio Lopez, Puyol, Salgado, Alonso, Baraja, Xavi (Sergio 74), Vicente, Raul (Morientes 65), Torres (Villa 61).
Subs Not Used: Reina, Marchena, Luis Garcia, Rivera.

Goals: Villa 70.

Agg: (2-6).

Att: 23,587.
