An amazing start for Spain in the under 20 World Cup, the youngsters clocking up their highest ever score in the competition with an 8-0 win over Tahiti. In the absence of the injured Bojan and Joselu there was a question over whether the squad had the fire power. But that was answered in the first half an hour when Aarón and then Nsue scored two each. Fran Mérdia made it five after the restart, and substitute Kike added two more before Ander Herrera rounded things off.
