Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has scored his first goal for Spain in four years after he was on target during the 7-0 thumping of Malta in what was their last home as far as the Euro 2020 qualifiers are concerned.

The Villarreal midfielder has made a miraculous return to the pitch in the last one year as he was able to defeat the Achilles injury that threatened to end his career abruptly.

Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata scored the first goal of the game for Spain before Cazorla added a second goal on 41 minutes to give his team a 2-0 lead at the halftime interval.

The second half saw Spain score five goals to make it a dominant scoreline.

The likes of Gerard Moreno, Dani Olmo, Jesus Navas, Pablo Sarabia and Pau Torres were all on the scoresheet.

Santi Cazorla played 53 minutes of the game before he was replaced by Borussia Dortmund striker Paco Alcacer.

The petite midfielder spent six years at Arsenal following his move from Spanish club Malaga in 2012.

He was a key player for the Gunners before injury struck towards the end of his Arsenal career.

Santi Cazorla left Arsenal at the end of his contract last summer before returning to former club Villarreal.
