Spain followed up Saturday's 2-1 victory over England at Wembley by thrashing Croatia, this summer's World Cup finalists, 6-0 in Alicante.

The six zero scoreline at the full time whistle revealed a very rare statistic, and clearly showed the attacking prowess of Spain - all the six goals were scored by different players, including an own goal from the Croatian goalkeeper, Kalinic. The Oxford United forward tapped home in the 67th minute, 106...

More importantly, they are off to a winning start under Luis Enrique, with their performances in Elche and against England at Wembley a stark reminder of the quality they possess, which seemed to go missing in their tempestuous World Cup campaign.

The hosts will need to be in better form against Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard than in their last game, the first without influential manager Heimir Hallgromsson, where they were beaten 6-0 by Switzerland. The next three goals were buried in the net by Rodrigo, Sergio Ramos and Isco in the second half.

Croatia will hope to get their first Nations League points when they host England next month.

Ten minutes later Marco Asensio made it 2-nil with a powerful shot. Hamren made three changes to the side that lost to the Swiss with Runar Sigurjonsson, Emil Hallfredsson and Hordur Magnusson coming in for Rurik Gislason, Gudlaugur Victor Palsson and Bjorn Sigurdarson and his side looked much more stable in the opening exchanges.

Dalic's men did play a friendly on Thursday night, drawing 1-1 with Portugal as Ivan Perisic and Pepe exchanged goals, but he has to deal with several team changes since the World Cup.

The hosts took their foot off the gas for the final quarter of an hour although Rodrigo and Isco still had chances to pile more humilation on Zlatko Dalic's side, who were handed a stark reality check on the back of their run in Russian Federation.
