  • Pique focused on Albania task

As captain of Spain and of Real Madrid, I have the duty to unite the group.

Spain have booked their place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, following a 3-0 victory over group G rival Albania.

"It has been a hard, complicated week and fortunately we managed to do that in a very, very good first 30 minutes".

"The tweet from Pique is not the best idea if he doesn't want them to whistle him", Ramos had said on the subject.

Pique also fiercely criticised the Spanish government and prime minister Mariano Rajoy after Catalan officials said over 840 people had been injured in clashes with police as they stormed polling stations across the region.

Lopetegui is confident that Spain fans will stand by the team at the Jose Rico Perez stadium.

The chaos has spilled onto the football pitch and the national team, with Gerard Pique being booed at training sessions throughout the week after voting in the banned referendum, while the Barcelona defender received a mixture of support and boos from supporters in the game against Albania.

"The fans in Alicante are very enthusiastic about this game and know the importance of it", he said.

The 2010 world champions are now guaranteed to finish in top spot as Italy - who started the day three points behind in second - could only draw at home to FYR Macedonia in what was the penultimate round of fixtures. "We have a game plan and we will see where it takes us", Coleman told Sky Sports.

Italy's 1-1 draw with Macedonia means Spain goes into the final round of fixtures on Tuesday (AEST) guaranteed a place in the tournament proper, holding a five-point lead at the top, while Albania's slim hopes of earning a play-off spot are over. "We are delighted and proud of what we have achieved because it's very important for Spain".

"Albania is a national team that has talent, physicality and tactical order".

Third-placed Ukraine defeat bottom-side Kosovo 2-0 to join Serbia on 17 points, but they have an inferior goal difference.
