In the meeting of the first round of Group E of the World Cup, the Spanish national team defeated Costa Rica 7:0.
Luis Enrique’s team set several historical records in the match.
In today’s meeting, possession of the ball in favor of the Spaniards was 81.7%, which is the best result of all time in the history of the World Cup. The previous record was held by Argentina (80.3% against Greece at the 2010 World Cup).
In addition, Spain became the first team to make more than 1,000 passes in a World Cup match. 976 out of 1056 passes were accurate, which of course is also a record.
Spain will play their next match on Sunday, November 27, against Germany. Costa Rica will meet Japan on the same day.
