  • SPAIN LEAD! As reward for their incessant attacking from the first whistle, La Roja go ahead early on! Gavi finds a yard of space just outside the area and chips a delicate ball over the top, which then deflects into the path of Olmo, who calmly steers the ball past an exposed Navas! Spain's 100th World Cup goal puts them 1-0 up!

  • ASENSIO STRIKES! Spain go 2-0 up! Alba's low cross from the left edge of the area slices through the rather static Costa Rica defence, and Asensio reacts first to sweep the ball home via a desperate fingertip from Navas. The veteran goalkeeper can only guide it into the bottom corner, and his side trail by two!

  • SPAIN LEAD BY THREE! Outfoxing Navas with a skip at the end of his run-up, Torres dinks the ball into the back of the net from the penalty spot and puts his nation three goals to the good!

  • FOUR FOR SPAIN! Aided by some awful defending, Torres strikes again to put Spain 4-0 up with his 15th international goal. Having bundled his way into the box, Oviedo fails to deal with the forward's turn and allows him to turn the ball past a helpless Navas from close range!

Not only La Roja's youngest-ever player at a World Cup, the Barcelona wonderkid adds a goal from Morata's cross! Spain 5-0 Costa Rica!

  • SPAIN HIT SIX! Substitute Soler adds another for La Roja, as Navas can't fully clear a low cross whipped over from the right by Williams, and the Valencia midfielder coolly steers the ball into the bottom corner from close range! That puts Spain 6-0 up, and Costa Rica just want this game to end!
