Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo was on hand to seal Spain's 2-0 win over Finland in World Cup qualifying in Helsinki on Friday.

Jordi Alba opened the scoring for La Roja after 18 minutes with the second coming with four minutes remaining in regular time.

Negredo, who joined City from Sevilla in the summer, latched onto a low cross from club teammate Jesus Navas and fired the ball home from close range to maintain Spain's position on top of Group I.
