Confederation Cup: Spain vs Tahiti photo gallery
Congratulations to Tahiti for having the courage to face world champs Spain in the Confederation Cup challenge today.
Spain thrashed Tahiti 10-0 to set a new record for the biggest margin of victory at the finals of an international FIFA tournament.
The world and European champions broke the record previously held by two countries: Hungary, who beat South Korea 9-0 at the 1954 World Cup and overcame El Salvador 10-1 at the 1982 tournament; and Yugoslavia, who crushed Zaire 9-0 at the 1974 World Cup.
Fernando Torres scored four goals and David Villa claimed a hat-trick in the Group B match at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, with David Silva scoring twice and Juan Mata also finding the net.
