But he misses a penalty as Spain win 10-0

Fernando Torres smacked four goals past little Tahiti tonight as Spain thumped the minnows 10-0 in the Rio De Janeiro.

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata notched up a goal as well. Cesar Azpilicueta was the third of the Blues players on show and he had a solid if uninspired game at right back. Bizarrely, TV pundit Robbie Savage blasted Torres's performance, claiming he "was poor".

Okay, Torres did miss a penalty, ramming his spot kick off the crossbar, but he wasn't that bad.The other scorers were David Villa who netted a hat trick, David Silva who notched up a brace.Spain are now favourites to win Group B with just a final match against Nigeria on Sunday. 

<p>If  all goes to plan they will avoid Brazil in the semi-final stage. The hosts face Italy on Saturday.

David Luiz will face nose surgery at the end of the Confederations Cup tournament after breaking his beak against Mexico yesterday .The Chelsea centre back is quoted as saying: "I'll have to wait until the end of the competition and undergo surgery to fix it."Yes, my nose is broken, but that's part of the game."
