(CNN) -- An injury-time goal from Albert Riera earned European champions Spain a 2-1 victory against Turkey in Istanbul to retain their 100 per cent record in World Cup qualifying Group Five.
Spain players celebrate Xabi Alonso's equalizer in their last-gasp 2-1 victory in Istanbul.
With Spain seemingly set to drop their first points in the group, Liverpool midfielder Riera silenced the passionate Ali Sami Yen supporters in sensational style.
Turkey took a 26th-minute lead when a long pass from Arda Turan found Tuncay Sanli and his cross was netted by Semih Senturk.
Riera's Liverpool team-mate Xabi Alonso levelled from the penalty spot in the 62nd minute, stroking the ball home after Ibrahim Uzulmez had handled a Fernando Torres header at the far post.
But, with the game heading for a draw, substitute Daniel Guiza surged down the right and crossed for Riera to fire the ball through goalkeeper Volkan Demirel legs.
The result means Spain continue to blaze a trail in the group, with a maximum 18 points from their six matches.
Bosnia remain second in the group with 12 points after an Edin Dzeko double helped them defeat Belgium 2-1. Meanwhile, in the group's other match, Estonia beat Armenia 1-0 to leave the Armenian's trailing bottom of the group with just a single point.
Meanwhile, Denmark and Hungary remain clear in Group One after beating Albania and Malta 3-0 respectively on Wednesday.
The results mean both nations are on 13 points, with group favorites Portugal and Sweden now facing a fight to qualify although they have games in hand on the two leaders.
Group Two remains tight with just four points separating the top four countries. A Georgios Samaras penalty proved enough to give Greece a hard-fought 2-1 win over Israel -- the Israelis' first group defeat -- to leave them top on goal difference.
Switzerland saw off Moldova 2-0 and to also lie on 13 points, while Latvia are three points behind in third place after defeating Luxembourg 2-0.
