Alvaro Negredo scored twice to put Spain into Euro 2012 as the defending champion beat Liechtenstein 6-0 in qualifying on Tuesday.
Spain secured Group I with two games to spare to join Germany and Italy in next year's tournament in Poland and the Ukraine where it is looking to become the first European nation to defend the title after winning the World Cup.
Negredo opened the scoring in the 33rd minute and netted again four minutes later before Xavi Hernandez sent Spain into the break 3-0 ahead.
David Villa scored a pair after Sergio Ramos added the fourth eight minutes after the restart.
