Spain scores its biggest ever World Cup win

The 7-0 defeat of Costa Rica, on the afternoon of this Wednesday (23), was the biggest victory won by Spain in World Cups. The previous mark was 6-1 against Bulgaria in the last round of the first phase of the 1998 French Cup.

Despite the result in the French World Cup, it was of no use, since the team of Zubizarreta, Hierro, Raúl and Luis Enrique ended up being eliminated, after losing to Nigeria by 3 to 2 and drawing without goals with Paraguay.

The score against the Costa Ricans, however, is still far from the biggest rout of all editions of the Cups. In Spain-1982, Hungary applied 10 to 1 in El Salvador. Then came two 9-0 scores (Yugoslavia over Zaire, in 1974, and Hungary over South Korea, in 1954).

The curiosity of the victory over Costa Rica is that the score this Wednesday was one goal from the sum of all scored by Spain in the edition in which it won the title, in the 2010 South African Cup. On that occasion, the Spaniards only scored 8 goals in 7 games.
