The Spanish national team came to Qatar to do something big, as proved yesterday by the seven goals they scored against Costa Rica in a 7:0 victory.
It seemed that Luis Enrique had written a script before the game, but even he did not believe that things would look so good for 'La Roja' in their first game in the World Cup.
Spain together with the England team that defeated Iran 2:6, signed the most impressive performance so far in Qatar.
Yesterday's result is none other than their biggest win in World Cup history.
The Spaniards kicked at Costa Rica's goal 17 times in total yesterday, with the opposition failing to threaten Unai Simon's goal even once.
Also, Luis Enrique's men completed 976 passes, the most since the 1966 World Cup in games without extra time.

Another great statistic is ball possession.
The Spanish held the ball for 82.8% of the game - and also entered the distinguished list of teams that managed to score more than 100 goals in the World Cup.
At the top of the list is Brazil with 229, followed by Germany with 227, Argentina with 138, Italy with 128 and France with 124.
Although this is only the beginning, and the opponent would have looked like one of the weaker opponents in Qatar, but the ability of the red team yesterday - gives the Spanish fans a lot of hope for the future.
