This was so easy. From on the ground, just outside the box, Parejo poked a ball into it as Gregersen tried to bundle clear, and Oyarzabal tapped square for Rodrigo to tap home. I think Spain might just shade this one.

GOAL! Spain 1-0 Faroe Islands 0 (Rodrigo)
So busy was I seeking that that I missed the teams coming out, but out there are!
A goal you may have missed this weekend.
Are Ramos and Carvajal the only players in this Spain XI who play for Barca or Madrid? That can't have happened often.
As for Faroes, they've lost five from five, conceding 16 and scoring three. Even Morata could fancy his chances against them.
Elsewhere tonight: we've got Finland-Italy and Sweden-Norway, but let's be real: there's not much jeopardy in these groups, which is more or less exactly what Uefa commissioned.
Elsewhere: Denmark have been held to a 0-0 draw in Georgia. That's a very nifty result for Ireland, who currently top Group D with 11 points from five games. Denmark have nine from five and Switzerland eight from four. Both of those will be in the playoffs whatever.
I should add, though, that Rodri is going to be a very, very good player.
Back to Spain, they are missing Asensio, Busquets, Isco and Jordi Alba - fine players - but they're not world-beaters. Obviously Busquets was, but he's a way beyond that now. If you picked a world XI, none of this lot are getting in and they'd not even be in the squad.
Tell you what, that is not a scary Spain side. They'll account for the Faroes, obviously, but there's not much there to terrify your Frances, Netherlandses, Englands and Germanys of this world.
Right, here's the Faroes team:
Nielsen; Vatnsdal, Gregersen, Baldvinsson; Vatnhamar, Hendriksson, Hansson, Davidsen; Edmundsson, Olsen, Bjartalio.
Spain currently top Group F with 15 points from five games. Behind them are Sweden, with 10 - they play Norway tonight - then Romania with 10 from six, Norway with eight from five, Malta with three from six and the Faroes with 0 from five. Norway and Sweden are assured of a playoff spot, with that now determined by Nations League performances.
I don't yet have the Faroes' XI, but I'm seeking it. I'm sure it pretty much picks itself and all that.
Evening all, and welcome to Spain v Faroe Islands!
