The full-back saw only intermittent success on the flanks at the FedEx Field. Drifted largely in and out of the game.
Fared well in defence, primarily in the first half. Tracked the runs of Pedro effectively, as well as producing a couple of key interceptions.
Tired as the game progressed, and struggled to make a similar impact in the second period. Substituted.
Disappointing evening. He never really got going, despite being labelled as a key threat. Substituted.
Industrious performance from Menjivar, who tussled keenly with Andres Iniesta and later Sergio Busquets. Decent showing, before being substituted.
Another who saw better success in the first period. Made the left-flank his own, before struggling to keep Spain at arm's length.
The 23-year-old fared better defensively, rather than offensively, as Spain began to take hold of the fixture. Tracked back superbly on occasions.
El Salvador's best outfield player this evening. Ceren was the Central Americans' creative hub, driving them forward, and putting in a performance in and around his own half, aiding his side's defensive contributions.
Enjoyed a decent performance in the middle against more esteemed opponents. Showed some good touches and generally looked comfortable.
The big striker saw action hard to come by, as he was mainly isolated in the opposition half.
The Champions League winning captain had little to do, making one save in his 84 minutes of action.
Enjoyed a fine game in Maryland, getting forward well and disrupting the opposition defence with a number of well-timed deliveries.
Had the positional awareness of getting forward at every possible occasion. Picked up an assist for Villa's first goal, and was too much for the opposition.
Saw early success pinging the ball cross-field towards Pedro, and generally supplemented the attack well.
Put in a good performance at the heart of the Spanish midfield this evening. Linked well with Iniesta going forward, and frustrated the opposition with his keen passing.
At his usual high standard and put El Salvador to the sword in midfield, utilising tight spaces and opening up the defence. Spain should have capitalised on his movement more.
Comfortable showing from a man, who despite looking a bit rough around the edges, contributed well to the Spanish midfield.
A disappointing evening in which he only saw 45 minutes of action. Headed a good chance wide, whilst also missing a penalty inside four minutes.
Held his own in a defence that was rarely troubled. Whatever he had to do, he did with minimal fuss.
Unlucky not to have a goal attributed to him, but will be happy with his showing on the eve of the World Cup. Won a penalty in the early stages, with his burly frame proving to be a problem for the opposition.
Lacked a bit of quality in the final third despite being given the space and time to prosper. Substituted after half-time.
Came on after the break and slotted in well for La Roja.
Added another dimension to the side after coming on, picking up an assist for David Villa in his substitute appearance.
The man of the match. Scored two goals, one of them dubiously awarded, but the second was a testament to his quality as a striker - holding off the defender and slotting under Hernandez.
