Spain captain Sergio Ramos scored for the fifth international in succession as his side made a winning start to Euro 2020 qualification against Norway.

The Real Madrid defender clipped in a trademark 'Panenka' penalty as La Roja won 2-1 in their Group F opener in Valencia.

Rodrigo had opened the scoring for Luis Enrique's side and though Josh King levelled from the penalty spot, Ramos had the final say with his 16th goal of the season for club and country.

Elsewhere in the group, Sweden beat Romania 2-1 in Solna.

Robin Quaison and Viktor Claesson put Sweden two up at the break and they held on despite substitute Claudiu Keseru's reply.

Ten-man Malta beat the Faroe Islands by the same scoreline in a hard-fought encounter between the group's two underdogs.

Kyrian Nwoko put Malta ahead in the first half and Steve Borg's penalty proved decisive. Andrei Agius was sent off but Brandur Hendriksson missed from the spot for the Faroes, whose goal came eight minutes into injury time from Jakup Thomsen.
