Azerbaijan 0 - Spain 6

Spain made it 32 games without defeat after beating Azerbaijan 0-6 on Tuesday evening. Vicente Del Bosque's side used their stop over in the East European state to warm up for next week's Confederations Cup, and took full advantage to demonstrate to their opponents that they are still the best in the world.

Against a side who have a solid defensive record at home they were able to score a "set", with David Villa netting a first half hat-trick to move ahead of Morientes and Butragueño as Spain's third highest all-time goalscorer.

Riera, Güiza and Fernando Torres added three more after the restart to round things off, and now its on to South Africa for Sunday's opener against New Zealand. Will anybody be able to stop them?
