Dani Olmo's stoppage-time winner gave Spain their first victory in the World Cup qualifying campaign

Striker Dani Olmo scored a stoppage-time winner as Spain edged past Georgia in 2022 World Cup qualifying Group B.

Manchester City's Ferran Torres slid home Jordi Alba's cross to equalise.

Alba was also credited with the assist for Olmo's late long-range effort which gave the visitors a crucial win in front of 15,000 fans.

Georgia's Levan Shengelia was then sent off moments before the final whistle.

Spain, who host Kosovo on Wednesday, drew their opening qualifier 1-1 at home to Greece.

Georgia visit Greece on Wednesday.
