Destroyed. The Spaniards mocked Costa Rica

Before the start of the match, there were no questions about the favorite of the meeting. Young Spain against one Keylor Navas. Did anyone believe in a miracle from Costa Rica? Probably, but it’s worth asking the 40,000 fans who came to watch the game. The teams were placed in Group E along with the national teams of Germany and Japan. By the way, the Japanese sensationally beat the Germans, making the second sensation at this World Cup. But Costa Rica failed to play at a normal level with the Spaniards.

“Red Fury” actively started the meeting. After 11 minutes, the first goal was already scored. Distinguished 24-year-old midfielder of the German “RB Leipzig” Dani Olmo. After a little confusion at the gate of the Costa Ricans, Dani was able to find the moment to strike and plunged the ball into the net. Naturally, the Spaniards did not stop there. After 10 minutes, the advantage of the team was increased by Marco Asensio after an assist by Jordi Alba. Keeping the trend of scoring every 10 minutes, Spain scored third in the 31st minute of the game. This time, Ferran Torres scored from the penalty spot. With a score of 3:0, the teams went to the break.

The intensity of the game eased after three goals, but Spain remained in full control of the match. Looking ahead, we note that the possession turned out to be 82% to 18% at the end of the game. At the 54th minute, Torres made a double and brought the matter to a rout. Ferrana was replaced by Luis Enrique in the 57th minute and Alvaro Morata came on, and Carlos Soler came on for Pedri. Soon both Morata and Soler will give out a fiery ending to the match.

Tiki-taka from the Spaniards continued and it once again bore fruit. In the 74th minute, 18-year-old Barcelona player Gavi scored, becoming the youngest player to score for the Red Fury, as well as the second youngest player in the history of the World Cup who has ever scored. The first, of course, is the legendary Pele.

Everything went to its logical conclusion, the score was 5:0, the referee added 8 minutes. And here Soler and Morata for some reason decided that they needed to score 2 more goals against Navas, they didn’t mock the PSG goalkeeper enough. At the 90th minute, Carlos scored, and at 90+2 – Alvaro.

A 7-0 win is a great start for the Spaniards in terms of goal difference. In fact, Spain can already be congratulated for reaching the playoffs. In the next round, the wards of Luis Enrique will play with Germany, and Costa Rica will meet with Japan.
