Santi Cazorla made his first appearance in over four years and Jesus Navas scored his first international goal in six years as Spain beat Faroe Islands 4-1 to stay top of their  Euro 2020 Qualifying group.

​​​​​​Sevilla winger Navas bagged his first Spain goal since a 2-2 draw with Chile in September 2013 as Luis Enrique's men strolled to victory in Torshavn.

Cazorla started after being named in the squad for the first time since November 2015 and played the entire game.

Navas, Sergio Ramos, Jose Gaya and an own goal from goalkeeper Teitur Gestson sealed Spain's third straight win in Group F.

Klaemint Olsen turned in a smart strike for the Faroes to make it 2-1 on the half-hour mark, but the hosts were ultimately outclassed.

Romania are third on four points after snatching a 2-2 draw at Norway after trailing by two goals.

Norway had salvaged a point in an epic 3-3 draw in their last outing against Sweden with a last-gasp goal but they were the victims of a stoppage-time equaliser against Romania.

Tarik Elyounoussi gave the hosts the lead in the 56th minute and Martin Odegaard looked to have sealed Norway's first victory of the campaign when he struck in the 70th minute.

Yet visiting striker Claudiu Keseru had other ideas, pulling a goal back in the 77th minute with a header from close range before completing the comeback in stoppage time with another strike.
