Torres and Villa both net hat tricks as the World Cup holders batter the Pacific islanders

By Greg Stobart

  • Pepe Reina

    22
    3.00

    Pepe Reina

    The Liverpool goalkeeper had absolutely nothing to do.

  • Raúl Albiol
    25
    15
    2.50

    Raúl Albiol

    Never tested defensively, a threat in the air at attacking set pieces.

  • César Azpilicueta
    38
    13
    3.00

    César Azpilicueta

    Switched off a couple of times early on but the Chelsea full-back kept offering an outlet on the right side.

  • Sergio Ramos
    35
    14
    2.50

    Sergio Ramos

    Spain's captain for the afternoon had a comfortable first 45 minutes before being replaced by Jesus Navas during the interval.

  • Monreal
    32
    11
    3.00

    Monreal

    The Arsenal man provided natural width from left-back and popped up with the assist for Spain's fifth goal.

  • Javi Martínez
    32
    15
    3.00

    Javi Martínez

    Kept Spain ticking in central midfield in the first-half before dropping back to central defence in the second period. Never tested.

  • Santi Cazorla
    32
    20
    3.00

    Santi Cazorla

    The Arsenal man forced Roche into a sharp save in the first-half. Typically classy on the ball after switching to a deeper role in the second-half.

  • David Silva
    61
    8
    4.00

    David Silva

    Scored Spain's second goal with a perfectly timed run and classy finish into the bottom corner and sealed the scoreline with the final strike late on. Played some lovely through balls to runners in behind the Tahiti defence.

  • David Villa
    62
    25
    4.00

    David Villa

    Spain's all-time leading scorer took his international record up to 56 goals with a hat-trick. His first two were close-range finishes and his third a tap-in after a goalkeeping error. Also produced a fine assist for Silva's goal.

  • Fernando Torres
    133
    52
    4.50

    Fernando Torres Top of the Match

    The Chelsea striker scored four goals with some excellent finishing in the penalty area - although he still missed from the penalty spot in the second half.

  • Juan Mata
    68
    13
    3.50

    Juan Mata

    Enjoyable game for the Chelsea playmaker, who set up Torres' opener and fired home a goal himself in the second-half with his weaker right foot.

Substitutions

  • Andrés Iniesta Luján
    34
    13

    Andrés Iniesta Luján

    Came on for Cazorla 14 minutes from time.

  • Cesc Fàbregas

    22
    3.00

    Cesc Fàbregas

    Saw lots of the ball after replacing Mata in the 69th minute.

  • Jesús Navas González
    52
    9
    3.50

    Jesús Navas González

    A real threat after replacing Ramos at the break and provided some good crosses.

  • Mikaël Roche
    33
    11
    1.00

    Mikaël Roche Flop of the Match

    Poor effort to stop Torres' opener and a howler for the seventh - but you couldn't help but feel sorry for him as the goals rained in. A very sharp save to deny Cazorla in the first-half, and he had a great relationship with the crowd.

  • Tehevaril Ludivion
    15
    8
    1.50

    Tehevaril Ludivion

    The centre-back got tight to the Spain strikers early on, but didn't have a clue where they were once the goals started coming.

  • Nicolas Vallar
    14
    8
    2.00

    Nicolas Vallar

    The captain made some impressive last-ditch blocks and tackles but simply didn't have the pace, athleticism or awareness to deal with Spain's attacking play.

  • Edson Lemaire
    14
    8
    1.00

    Edson Lemaire

    Solid in the opening stages and made some good interceptions, but struggled to handle Spain's movement once the game opened up.

  • Jonathan Tehau
    18
    7
    1.50

    Jonathan Tehau

    Brilliant block with his body to divert Albiol's header away from goal in the first-half and worked hard throughout, despite his side being outclassed.

  • Alvin Tehau
    16
    8
    1.50

    Alvin Tehau

    Ran with enthusiasm and energy throughout the game as his side's lone striker - but could barely get a touch of the ball.

  • Henri Caroine
    13
    7
    1.50

    Henri Caroine

    Did not look daunted by the occasion of the arena. Held a good position protecting the defence and his passing was fairly accurate.

  • Heimano Bourebare
    13
    8
    1.00

    Heimano Bourebare

    Valiantly continued in his attempts to close down the Spain midfielders but appeared exhausted by the start of the second-half.

  • Ricky Aitamai
    14
    9
    1.00

    Ricky Aitamai

    Another Tahiti player who couldn't keep up with Spain's sharpness but gave his all. Handled the ball for the Spain penalty.

  • Steevy Chong Hue
    28
    4
    2.50

    Steevy Chong Hue

    Brought the biggest roar of the afternoon with a powerful run in the first-half which ended in him being brought down 25 yards from goal. Looked sharp and produced some impressive touches - could go on to play at a higher level than the Tahitian first division.

  • Marama Vahirua
    38
    5
    2.50

    Marama Vahirua

    Tahiti's only professional player produced some neat and tidy passes, especially in the first quarter of the game as the minnows did their best to keep Spain at bay.

Substitutions

  • Yannick Vero

    Replaced Alvin Tehau in the 53rd minute but barely touched the ball.
