Thanks for joining us for this LIVE match commentary of Spain-Tahiti, head on over to our next match: Nigeria-Uruguay.
Spain's ten goal margin has set a new record in senior FIFA men's tournaments. Hungary defeated Korea Republic 9-0 at the 1954 World Cup and they also defeated El Salvador by the same scoreline 10-1 at Spain 1982. Yugoslavia also defeated Zaire 9-0 in the 1974 FIFA World Cup.
10-0 (89') Spain are the first team in Confederations Cup history to reach double figures. It is 3rd double figure effort in team history.— Infostrada Sports (@Infostrada Sports) 20/06/2013 22:46
All over here in the Maracana. Spain reach double figures, becoming the first team in the FIFA Confederations Cup to do so. The Spain players leave the pitch, but shake hands with every single one of the team. The Tahiti players then receive a magnificent ovation from the crowd. The Maracana is rocking.
Spain get into double figures after a smart turn and finish from David Silva. The fans in the Maracana still want one from Tahiti.
Best ever celebration by a goalkeeper who didn't touch the missed pen and has already conceded 8:) #tahiti— Dan Walker (@Dan Walker) 20/06/2013 22:36
What a few minutes here. Spain are granted a penalty when Aitamai handles Navas's cross, but then Torres misses the resulting penalty to the sheer delight of the crowd. A minute later, the ball breaks to the forward who rounded the keeper and slotted home for Spain's ninth.
