Ferran Torres’ hat-trick helped Spain clobbered the German team by 6-0 in the ongoing UEFA Nations League at Estadio de La Cartuja on November 17, 2020.
Spain claimed their place in next fall’s UEFA Nations League Finals with this shocking triumph over Germany in Seville.
Alvaro Morata gave the hosts the lead with a free header from a corner after 17 minutes, before Ferran Torres pounded in a second by boring in a bounce back after Dani Olmo’s header hit the crossbar.
Another free header from a corner, this time by Rodri, added Spain’s third of a first half in which they were unfortunate not to score more.
There was no rest for Germany in the second half as Spain incurred more injuries to the Germans. Torres was ablaze as he put the final details to two splendid moves to finish a cap stunt.
Spain created opportunities voluntarily in the middle of the game and adjusted a fundamental whipping when Mikel Oryazabal polished off another clinical move not long before full-time for Spain’s 6th goal.
Spain are the second team to meet all requirements for the finals and will join France and two others for the competition presently planned to occur in October 2021.
This was the second worst defeat throughout the entire existence of Europe’s premier international side, and the biggest under the guidance of Joachim Low.
Spain’s hypnotizing execution was for the ages, a return to their own supreme period of 10 years or so ago and one that may yet prove to be this teams’ breakthrough performance rather than their signature one.
Of the current squad, only veterans Sergio Ramos and Sergio Busquets are in their thirties.
