Madrid's Sergio Ramos has 'a good friendship' with Barca's Gerard Pique

Spain conceded their third goal in six qualifiers, but David Silva and Diego Costa fired Julen Lopetegui's side to victory.

Sergio Ramos allayed the idea he has a troubled relationship with Gerard Pique after returning to play alongside the Barcelona defender during Spain's 2-1 World Cup qualifying win against Macedonia on Sunday.

Ramos was one of several Madrid players to chant "Pique, you b-----d, bow down to the champions" as Zinedine Zidane's side celebrated their La Liga title last month -- although Pique said at the time he was not offended by the celebrations.

Julen Lopetegui calls Spain's narrow win vs. Macedonia 'positive'

Spain conceded their third goal in six qualifiers, but David Silva and Diego Costa fired Julen Lopetegui's side to victory.

Spain coach Julen Lopetegui insisted he was satisfied after the 2-1 win in Macedonia.

The Spaniards stayed in control of Group G thanks to first-half goals from David Silva and Diego Costa.

"The goal was to get the three points and we did,'' said Lopetegui...
