Negredo nets Spain's winner

Alvaro Negredo was on target for Spain to put them 90 minutes away from World Cup qualification.

City’s ‘Beast’ was introduced from the bench just before the hour mark, and went on to score what proved to be the winner in a 2-1 defeat of Belarus.

The striker started and finished the move, heading powerfully into the net from a Sergio Ramos cross.

David Silva started for the Spanish and caused the visiting defence all sorts of problems with his movement and trickery, while Jesus Navas was an unused substitute.

Vincente Del Bosque’s men need to avoid defeat to Georgia to be assured of their place in Brazil next summer.

At Wembley, it was Joe Hart and James Milner against Stevan Jovetic as England faced off against Montenegro in a crucial World Cup qualifier.

It was City and England’s no.1 who emerged on the winning side – the Three Lions finished 4-1 victors on home turf.

Joe started the game but was rarely tested, although he did make an acrobatic leap to deny a Montenegro equaliser from a free kick at 1-0.

Meanwhile Jovetic, who also earned a starting berth for his country, gave a good account of himself and was unlucky to see his blistering shot smack against the crossbar.

Milner took his place on the bench and came on for the last three minutes of the fixture.

England must now beat Poland on Tuesday to avoid a play-off in their quest to reach Brazil.
