World Cup 2022: Spain 7-0 Costa Rica Ferran Torres scores twice

while Spain's seven goals against Costa Ricaout scored England's six against Iran, and it was also their biggest-ever World Cup win; we cannot judge Luis Enrique's side properly until they have faced a meaningful test. 

That should come in their next match, on Sunday, against a German side who will be fighting for their future in this tournament after their shock defeat by Japan. 

There was still much to savour for Spain and their supporters at Al Thumama Stadium, of course, especially Gavi's delicious volley to make it 5-0, but it was evident from the start that this was a giant mis-match and the scoreline reflected the huge gulf between the two sides. 

Costa Rica were the last team to qualify for Qatar, thanks to a play-off victory over New Zealand in June, but barring a huge improvement they look likely to be one of the first teams to be eliminated. 

Spain ripped through them far too easily, sometimes straight down the middle of the pitch, and the game was finished as a contest after barely half an hour when Ferran Torres converted a penalty to make it 3-0. 

They kept coming forward in waves in the second half and more goals followed even after Enrique made a raft of changes - like England some of their substitutes got involved in the scoring.
