UEFA Nations League: Spain Trash World Cup Finalist Croatia 6 – 0



Real Madrid star, Marco Asensio inspired Spain to defeat world cup runner up Croatia in the UEFA Nations League

The 6 – 0 tromping of Croatia is the major win of Spain under new Manager Luis Enrique, Marco Asensio started the rout for the Spaniards when he put two long-range shots past the Croatian goalkeeper, Lovre Kalinic.

Spain went three up before half-time When Saul Niguez who Scored a winner against England at Wembley four days earlier headed home a Dani Carvajal cross to give the home side the 3-0 lead before halftime.

Asensio went on to provide three assists when he first threaded Rodrigo Moreno through to finish before supplying the corner for an

unmarked Sergio Ramos to nod in number five. Isco then flashed a sixth into the top corner, again Asensio the provider.

Two victories in four days mean Spain sit top of League A’s Group Two, with a six-point gap over both Croatia and England, who play each other in Rijeka next month.
