Spain thrashes Croatia 6-0 in UEFA Nations League

Sergio Ramos and Sergio Busquets have a discussion during Spain training on Monday

Luis Enrique took charge after the humiliating exit to Russian Federation at the World Cup had left Spain doubting the possession game that won them three consecutive major tournaments between 2008 and 2012.

Luis Enrique's side - who beat England at Wembley in their opener in the competition on Saturday - never looked back after Saul Niguez's headed opener.

Spain host World Cup runners-up Croatia in Elche on Tuesday and Aspas is poised to start again.

Some Liverpool fans believe they know why Spain battered Croatia 6-0 in the Nations League on Tuesday. However, it is the biggest defeat in Croatia's history, so it was a dismal day for them.

The two teams last met at Euro 2016 when Croatia came away with a 2-1 win after overturning Spain's lead.

The Real Madrid winger got his second assist of a spectacular display before the hour mark, his corner finding the head of the unmarked Ramos, who made no mistake from eight yards out.

Isco capped Spain's offensive show with a right-footed shot from the center of the box in the 70th minute.

According to the Financial Times , two people familiar with the case said it involves another Chinese student at the university. A spokesman for the Minneapolis police department said that Mr Liu was released "pending formal complaint".

Croatia drew 1-1 with Portugal on Thursday night in their first game since losing to France in the final in Russian Federation, while Spain will be on home soil under new boss Luis Enrique for the first time following his appointment.

Marco Asensio scored once and set up four more in Luis Enrique's second match in charge, as the World Cup finalists were run ragged in Elche.

"They belong to the Spanish national team, nothing more".

Belgium, meanwhile, thrashed Scotland 4-0 at Hampden Park on Friday night, and have lost only one of their last 26 games, that being the World Cup semi-final to France. "After the second goal, the match was over for us".

Spain have now won both of their opening UEFA Nations League games and on this evidence will take some stopping in League A.

Rodrigo - who scored the victor at Wembley - beat the offside trap before finishing neatly, Ramos headed in from a corner and Isco turned sharply before firing in from inside the box.

"If I talk about Croatia I would talk about Modric and Rakitic", he said.
