Liechtenstein 0-8 Spain: A big step towards Russia

Spain have taken a huge step towards qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia after beating Liechtenstein 8-0 on Tuesday night.

Julen Lopetegui’s men travelled to Vaduz in good spirits after beating Italy 3-0 at the weekend and they now find themselves just a couple of wins away from qualifying for next summer’s tournament.

The emphatic victory sees Spain stay three points clear of Italy, who beat Israel 1-0 at home.

Lopetegui and his coaching staff made four changes for the fixture, seeing Nacho Monreal, Alvaro Morata, Thiago and Pedro Rodriguez replace Dani Carvajal, Jordi Alva, Koke and the talented Marco Asensio.

And, it took just three minutes for the game to get its first goal as a wonderful cross from David Silva was headed in by Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos.

Morata then doubled the lead in the 15th minute as he headed in an Andres Iniesta cross, before the Chelsea forward found Isco moments later to make it 3-0.

The visitors made it 4-0 just before half time as Silva stepped up and placed a superb free-kick into the top right hand corner, and it was soon to be five after the interval as Iago Aspas came off the bench to tap home a rebounded Morata effort.

The former Liverpool man would then turn provider as he found Morata, who slotted home his second goal of the evening.

Aspas would then help himself to another, before Gerard Deulofeu’s deflected cross went in to make it 8-0.

Next up for La Roja is a home game against Albania on October 6.
