Spain scored three goals in each half as they completely outplayed Croatia, who were playing just their second game since the World Cup final.

Some Liverpool fans believe they know why Spain battered Croatia 6-0 in the Nations League on Tuesday.

It got worse for Croatia before the break as Asensio grabbed two memorable goals in the space of two minutes, first blasting beyond Kalinic from 25 yards before driving towards the box and curling a stunning effort that smacked the crossbar and went in off the unfortunate goalkeeper.

Luis Enrique admitted after Spain's 6-0 win over Croatia that he has the backbone of the team well in place now and there has been a notable power shift in personnel from Barcelona to Real Madrid.

Dalic's men did play a friendly on Thursday night, drawing 1-1 with Portugal as Ivan Perisic and Pepe exchanged goals, but he has to deal with several team changes since the World Cup.

And finally, a memorable result was capped by a final goal by Isco. It made it two wins out of two for Luis Enrique's side in their Nations League campaign.

"They belong to the Spanish national team, nothing more". Croatia and England have no points after their respective losses to Spain. "After the second goal, the match was over for us".

Although this was a night on which a new generation of global stars were born, Sergio Ramos was not to be left out as the defender lost his marker from a corner to head home his fourth goal of the season on 57 minutes.

"Croatia are the World Cup runners-up and all teams will be motivated against us - and we have to be aware of that".
