FIFA 2022: Spain dominates game, winning 7-0 over Costa Rica

Doha: In Wednesday's FIFA Group E match at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, Spain nearly thrashed a weak Costa Rica 7-0.

On a nice Doha evening, Spanish fans could not have had it better as Costa Rica failed to even attempt a shot at the goal, suffering a humiliating loss at the hands of the Europeans.

As he neatly guided the ball home in the 74th minute, teenage star Gavi, who also plays for Barcelona, became the youngest player since Brazil's Pele to score a World Cup goal, taking his side ahead by four goals to nil, IANS reported.

The Costa Ricans were unable to put up any resistance against a rampaging attack by the men in red since Dani Olmo's 11th-minute goal put Spain ahead 1-0.

Costa Rica players were found fumbling with just 18 per cent ball possession and 12 fouls out of 20 in the match.

Ferran Torres scored twice -- in the 31st minute and 54th minute, the first with a penalty. The other scorers were Asensio (21'), Soler (90') and Morata (90+2').

Spain meets Germany while Costa Rica takes on Japan on Sunday at the Al Bay Stadium and Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, respectively.
