World Cup 2022: Spain7-0 Costa Rica

In Group E, Spain kicked off their World Cup campaign in style, with a thrashing 7-0 victory over Costa Rica, as Ferran Torres netted twice, and Gavi made history in a dominant display.

Dani Olmo and Marco Asensio finished well, before Torres converted a penalty, during a first half, in which Luis Enrique’s men boasted 84% possession.

Torres netted his 2nd after the break, before 18-year-old Gavi dispatched a sweetly-taken volley to make it five.

The Barcelona man, became the youngest Spain-player to appear at a major tournament, and his goal made him the country’s youngest World Cup scorer ever.

Carlos Soler then made it 6-nil later on, before fellow replacement Alvaro Morata piled on the misery with a stoppage-time 7th.

The goal-fest, was Spain's biggest ever World Cup victory, and sent them Top of Group E,, ahead of their meeting with Germany on Sunday.
