- Malta lose 4-0 to Spain in Alicante. The Maltese managed to keep the net intact up to the 25th when Josep Guardiola opened the score following a Raul Gonzales pass. But in the previous six minutes, the Spaniars went very close twice, first in the 19th with an Alfonso Perez header hitting the post following a cross by Javier Manjarin and in the 21st, hitting the bar through a Fernando Hierro corner. In the 40th, Alfonso Perez doubled the score when he rocketed home a shot by Raul Gonzales. Just one minute after half time, Spain scored the third goal when Juan Antonio Pizzi managed to sent the ball through a crowded penalty area with Alfonso deviating the ball home. The referee then disallowed two Spanish goals, first when Luis Enrique Martinez pushed the goalkeeper while heading home and then Roberto Rios was in an offside position before beating Cini. In the 90th, Malta goalie Reggie Cini performed an excellent save on a Julen Guerrero shot but without holding the ball with Juan Antonio Pizzi hitting hard to make it 4-0
