Romania shocked Spain with a 1-0 win in their friendly in Cadiz.

Ciprian Marica's second-half goal was enough to give the Eastern Europeans a famous victory.

Romania broke the deadlock just before the hour mark, with Shakhtar Donetsk ace Marica finding the net.

The visitors went close to doubling their lead on 71 minutes, but Iker Casillas kept out Cristian Chivu's effort.

Spain piled forward in the closing stages in search of an equaliser, but they could not find a way past a resolute Romanian defence.

The defeat has increased the pressure on under-fire Spain boss Luis Aragones after a disappointing start to their Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.
