Spain cruises to eight goal victory against Liechtenstein

Spain routed Liechtenstein in their first World Cup qualifying match, securing a resounding 8-0 victory in Leon.

Liechtenstein looked determined to keep La Roja out in the first half, before eventually crumbling and allowing the Spaniards to run rampant in the second.

Diego Costa, David Silva and Alvaro Morata all bagged braces while Sergi Roberto and Vitolo also got on the scoresheet in the Group G opener.

Julen Loptegui’s men started well, with Diego Costa heading in a curled Koke free-kick from six-yards.

However, lacking the cutting edge, they were unable to finish the job, with Koke himself scuffing a shot. Vitolo, positioned perfectly to nod in the rebound, failed to make meaningful contact. Sergio Brusquets, who was on the follow-up, shot against Vitolo in the ensuing goalmouth scramble.

Spain’s second goal finally arrived after 54 minutes as Nolito turned and slipped in Roberto with a clever pass and the latter’s first-time toe poke beat keeper Peter Jehle.

Seemingly dazed by the goal, the Liechtenstein defense fell apart and conceded three more in little more than 10 minutes.

Vitolo ran behind the defense and set up Silva who hammered in off the bar from three yard. Nolito then clipped a ball into the box and a quick exchange of passes between Costa and Silva set up a simple finish for Vitolo.

Costa then headed in the fifth, after being initially denied by Jehle. The keeper could not keep the second attempt out. The Chelsea man was then replaced by Alvaro Morata, who quickly joined in on the scoresheet.

The Real Madrid striker scored his first with a shot that beat Jehle just inside his left-hand post after taking a slight deflection. The keeper was then left emabarassed after a simple sidefoot from Morata from the edge of the box squirmed through his grasp and over the line.

Silva then completed the rout with a fine finish in injury time.
