Posted by

Spain returned to winning ways on Sunday, thrashing Georgia 4-0 in a World Cup Qualifying match in Group B.

Jose Gaya, Carlos Soler, and Ferran Torres scored three goals in the first half to put the hosts in command. After the break, Pablo Sarabia added another.

Spain appeared to be in complete control and enjoyed a phenomenal 75% possession, demonstrating no lingering effects from their first World Cup qualification defeat in 28 years last time out against Sweden.

‘We came into this game following a defeat that hurt us a lot and we managed to bounce back,’ Torres said.

‘A result like this spurs us on and it was important to keep a clean sheet because goal difference could be key at the business end.’

The hosts set out in determined fashion and were ahead after 14 minutes, Gaya latching onto a poor clearance from a corner to put Spain 1-0 ahead.
