Spain rout Costa Rica in majestic seven-goal display

Luis Enrique’s side rise to the top of Group E after their most dominant World Cup performance to date.

Spain kicked off their World Cup in dazzling style on Wednesday night, beating Costa Rica 7-0 in a record win that marked their most dominant display to date in this year’s tournament.

Midfielder Dani Olmo opened manager Luis Enrique’s account in the 11th minute, marking the Spaniards’ 100th ever World Cup goal and starting a procession that was closed in the 92nd minute by Alvaro Morata.

Ten minutes later, Marco Asensio timed a run perfectly into the penalty area to link up powerfully with a cross from Jordi Alba.

Ferran Torres then scored the first of his two goals from the penalty spot in the 31st minute, while the Barcelona winger scored his second in the 54th minute as he took advantage of tentative defending.

Gavi, the youngest player to represent Spain at a World Cup, struck in the 74th minute with a perfectly hit volley.

Substitutes Carlos Soler and Morata then completed the totally one-sided encounter as the match drew to a close.
