Spain wrote their names into the record books with an amazing 14-0 win over minnows San Marino. Iñaki Sáez's side went two up in the first ten minutes with goals from David Silva and from debutant Llorente, who missed two sitters minutes later. By half time it was already four, Vagnetti scoring in his own net after the keeper saved from Silva, and Llorente heading his second on the stroke of half time from Gabi's cross.
Realizing he didn't need all his defenders, Sáez threw on Cesc and Jonathan at the break. The Espanyol striker was also making his debut at this level, and within five minutes he had added two more. The goals kept on coming, Silva scoring against a static defence and Jonathan completing his hat-trick before central defender Jarque got in on the act with a header from Iniesta's corner.
When Héctor Font got the tenth the electronic scoreboard at Poli Ejido's ground couldn't cope, and Jarque added to the misery of the visitors scoring two more for his own hat-trick. And there was still time for substitute Jesús Navas to get another and for Jonathan to take his own tally to four. Spain move up to second in their group, but the real challenge comes next month when they play Serbia.
