Group E was dubbed the 'group of death' ahead of the finals, but Spain will have little fear going into their clash against Germany after dispatching Costa Rica with consummate ease, and achieving their biggest-ever World Cup win in the process.

La Roja’s win puts them top of Group E ahead of Japan who stunned four-time champions Germany earlier at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Dani Olmo scored Spain’s 100th goal at the World Cup with the opener, while a double from Ferran Torres and goals from Marco Asensio, Gavi, Carlos Soler and Alvaro Morata ensured Luis Enrique’s men avoided an upset with Germany still to come in the group.

Spain became the sixth team after Brazil, Germany, Italy, France and Argentina to reach 100 goals at the World Cup.

Spain will next play Germany at the Al Bayt Stadium on Sunday, while Costa Rica will hope to bounce back against high-flying Japan at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium later that day. (Agencies)
