Xavi Alonso celebrated his 100th international cap with a brace as Spain saw off France 2-0 to set up an Iberian derby against Portugal in the semi-finals of Euro 2012.

Alonso's rare headed goal put Spain in control after 19 minutes and the former Liverpool midfielder wrapped up the victory with a last-minute penalty.

France were distinctly off colour all night and barely tested Spain, who will put their European crown on the line against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in Donetsk on Wednesday night.
