Julen Lopetegui’s men played with monstrous opportunity all through, as they stroked the ball around in style and took the full favorable position of Costa Rica’s poor protective association, as the away side made blunders for each of Spain’s initial four objectives.
Costa Rica really indicated flashes of guarantee from the get-go, however that immediately vanished as Spain took control, with Jordi Alba’s Silva-impacted opening objective after only six minutes introducing a time of genuine strength.
The vivacious Alvaro Morata included a moment in the 23rd moment and most likely ought to have scored at any rate cap trap before his half-time withdrawal.
Be that as it may, Spain’s assaulting unit scarcely languished over Morata’s substitution, as Silva included two objectives in four minutes not long after the restart, benefitting as much as possible from hapless goalkeeping and cataclysmic safeguarding.
Silva’s low cross into the punishment zone was not managed by Costa Rica and Alba was there to meet it, sending a wild first-time exertion into the correct side of the net.
Morata at that point went close twice in the same number of minutes not long after, testing goalkeeper Danny Carvajal from a tight edge on the two events.
Carvajal skilled Morata an objective somewhat later, however.
Silva and Iniesta joined down the left with a smart one-two and the Manchester City man, in the end, played the ball into the territory along the ground, with Carvajal mysteriously palming it directly into the way of Morata, who had a simple wrap up.
