Spain hand Germany worst defeat, 6-0 in Nations League
Published in Ahram Online on 18 - 11 - 2020

Spain handed Germany its worst defeat in a competitive match on Wednesday, winning 6-0 to advance to the Final Four of UEFA's Nations League.
Ferran Torres scored a hat trick to lead Spain to the historic victory in the win-or-go-home match in Group 4.
Germany's only five-goal loss in a competitive game had been West Germany's 8-3 defeat to Hungary at the 1954 World Cup group stage. West Germany went on to beat Hungary in the final. In non-competitive matches, Germany had also lost 6-0 to Austria in a friendly in 1931.
The victory ended a three-match winless streak for Spain, which hasn't gone four games without a win since the late 1980s.
Last year, Spain failed to advance to the Final Four after conceding late in a match against Croatia.
The Germans would have advanced with a draw, but Spain dominated early and took control with three goals in each half.
Spain got the convincing win despite playing most of the match without captain Sergio Ramos, who missed two penalty kicks in the 1-1 draw at Switzerland. Ramos had to be replaced by Èric Garcia just before the break with an apparent muscle injury in his right leg.
Spain constantly threatened up front, forcing Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to make a few good saves to keep the visitors from going into a bigger hole. Spain squandered several counterattack chances throughout the match in an empty La Cartuja Stadium in Seville.
Alvaro Morata opened the scoring in the 17th minute with a header into the top of the net off a corner kick taken by Fabian Ruiz, who came off the bench after an early injury to Sergio Canales.
Torres added to the lead in the 33rd with a shot from close range after Dani Olmo's header ricocheted off the crossbar, and five minutes later it was Rodri's header off a corner that gave the hosts a 3-0 halftime lead.
Torres added to the rout in the 55th and 71st minutes after other fast counterattacks by the hosts, and Mikel Oyarzabal closed the scoring in the 89th.
Morata had a goal disallowed for offside in the 23rd.
