It was absolute madness at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar. Spain football team turned their beast mode on as they steamrolled past the Costa Rica football 7-0. It was their biggest win in the history of their World Cup sojourns.

The FIFA World Cup 2022 has already witnessed 2 upsets but this game was far from an upset. Spain, which is a higher-ranked team than Costa Rica hammered the Central American team and sent shivers down the spines of their players. It was an absolute thrashing in its purest form.

Ferran Torres netted a brace while 5 other players of Spain football team found their names on the score sheet. Costa Rica failed to take a single shot in the entire game and did not have possession of the ball, most of the time. They had a possession percentage of only 18%.
