FT Spain 4 – 0 Republic of Ireland

After typically tidy interplay from the Spanish, Richard Dunne slid in to tackle Silva but the ball broke to Torres at the edge of the area. He effortlessly ghosted past Ward and cracked a decent shot past Given, who should have stopped it. 1-0.

At 49′, Given blocked an Ineista shot but only batted it out as far as Silva, who collected it eight yards out, feinted past St Ledger and then sidefooted it through two pairs of Irish legs and into the bottom corner. 2-0.

At 70′, McGeady lost possession in the middle, the ball was slipped through to Torres, who got away from Ward easily and then, despite pressure from Dunne, slotted it past Given and into the net from 18 yards. 3-0 for Spain.

Bang! At 83′, Fabregas fires the ball in off the post after Ireland fall asleep from a short corner. 4-0.
