Confederations Cup: Spain, Torres set new record with 10-0 Tahiti victory

Torres scored four of the goals.

World Champions Spain showed no mercy on Thursday night as they romped to a record 10-0 victory over football minnows, Tahiti, in the ongoing FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.

Thursday’s victory is the biggest win in the history of the Confederations Cup and the third biggest for Spain ever.

Four goals from Chelsea striker, Fernando Torres, a hat-trick for David Villa with additional two strikes David Silva and a goal from Juan Mata saw Spain firing on all cylinders into the semi finals despite having a final group game against Nigeria on Sunday.

Before Thursday’s win, the biggest victories at the Confederations Cup were 6-goal margins recorded by Brazil first against Saudi Arabia, 8-2, and against Australia, 6-0.

For Chelsea’s Torres, the four goals in today’s match have never been achieved in the Confederations Cup by any other player.
