    FULL-TIME STATS

    Spain gave Germany a good hiding!

    The heat maps tell the story.

    Spain (left) were all over the pitch, they knew the task at hand and they turned up for the big occasion.

    Germany (right) on the other hand barely got inside Spain's penalty area and they didn't register a single shot on target in 90 minutes!

    FT: SPAIN 6-0 GERMANY

    The game was already dead and buried at half-time but it didn't stop Spain from adding to their three first half goals.

    Torres got his second of the evening early on in the second half, he was picked out by Gaya in acres of space, he touched the ball out of his feet and smashed the ball past Neuer.

    The brace would later turn into a hat-trick, Ruiz slipped the ball to Torres on the edge of the area and he thumped the ball home with a first-time strike.

    Spain dominated the game throughout and they hit Germany for six with Oyarzabal tapping home Gaya's cross in the 90th minute.

    Spain are heading into the semi-finals of the Nations League, they turned up when it mattered and got the result in style!
