Those of Luis Enriquethey prevailed with goals from Dani Olmo, Marco Asensio, Ferrán Torres, Gavi, Carlos Soler and Álvaro Morata.

In an interview with Diario AS, < b>Podolski stated that he did not get to see the game, however, he stressed that, “Only the result gives you a clue of its quality. You can't go to the World Cup and concede seven goals. But Germany is not Costa Rica. It is also true that it is not easy to score seven goals in a World Cup match. I am not going to discover Spain now, we already know how Spain plays and who it is. It will be interesting because we already know that the pressure is on the German side.”
