Raul reaches century mark

Madrid ace has found the net 44 times for Spain since his debut a decade ago and had hoped to grab a landmark goal against Iceland.

Raul told Marca: "A hundred games in the shirt of Spain is something to be very proud and happy about.

"I am happy to have reached that figure. It is a very important achievement.

"To have played for the national team so many times shows I have been working hard.

"It is a shame the match did not turn out as we'd hoped. It was tough for us. We gave it everything.

"But the most important thing is that qualifying for Euro 2008 starts in 15 days and we have a good feeling about this."
