An astounding result for Spain in their second group game, a 7-0 win over Chile ensuring them of a place in the last sixteen. The South Americans had scored seven themselves against Honduras in their opening tie, and they looked like difficult opponents on paper. But after a brief flurry of activity in Ribas's goalmouth, Llorente got on the end of Gavilán's cross to head his side into the lead. Cesc had to clear a header from Montesinos off the line with the keeper beaten three minutes before the break, but a couple of minutes later Chile were left with ten men when Jara picked up a second booking.
The second half started similar to the first, Robusté heading Cesc's free kick past Arias against the run of play in the sixth minute. But after that the floodgates opened, Llorente finishing off an excellent run by Gavilán to make it three, and David Silva coming on to combine with Cesc and get a fourth. Llorente completed his hat-trick ten minutes from the end after a good team effort, and connected with Zapater's centre two minutes later to take his tally to four for the night and five in the competition. And Silva collected a pass from Cesc to complete the rout and take Iñaki Sáez's side to the top of their group.
