Spain teaches Aussies a lesson

AND this is why it’s the reigning world champion. Spain put on a clinic to dispose of the Socceroos in Brazil as both teams exited the 2014 World Cup.

Australia leaves the World Cup winless after suffering a deflating 3-0 loss to dethroned champion Spain, who managed to salvage some pride with its only victory in Brazil.

David Villa, who is set for a three-month spell in Australia with Melbourne City, became the fourth Spanish player to score in three World Cups when he backheeled home Juanfran’s cross for his 59th international goal in his 97th and final appearance for La Roja nine minutes before half-time.

Andres Iniesta then marked his 100th cap for his country with a lovely through ball for Fernando Torres to double Spain’s advantage on 69 minutes before Juan Mata slotted home a third eight minutes from time.
