Luxembourg: Diego Costa scored his first goal for Spain in seven appearances to help the defending European champion ease to a 4-0 win at Luxembourg and rebound from its first qualifying loss in eight years on Sunday.

The placid victory put Spain back on track to qualifying for the 2016 European championship three days after its 36-game unbeaten streak in qualifying ended in a 2-1 upset at Slovakia.

David Silva steered Spain to a 2-0 lead by opening the scoring in the 27th minute and setting up Paco Alcacer for his third goal in as many games in the 42nd.
