Spain strolled to a 5-1 win over Northern Ireland in Palma de Mallorca on Saturday in their final warm-up match before the European Championship starting in Germany next week.

Northern Ireland’s Daniel Ballard stunned Spain with a second-minute header. But Luis de la Fuente’s team powered past their overmatched opponents in Mallorca.

Pedri scored twice in the first half for his first goals in his 20th appearance for Spain. The Barcelona midfielder, now 21, helped Spain reach the semifinals of Euro 2021 but had not played since the 2022 World Cup due to injury. He made his return in Spain’s 5-0 win over Andorra on Wednesday.

Álvaro Morata and Fabián Ruiz also scored in the first half to put the hosts 4-1 up at the break before Mikel Oyarzabal sealed the win in the second half.

Spain start their Euro 2024 campaign next Saturday against Croatia before facing Italy and Albania in Group B.
