Alvaro Morata, Spain Dominate Malta 7-0 in 2020 Euro Qualifying Match

Spain hammered Malta 7-0 in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying on Friday at the Estadio Ramon de Carranza in Cadiz.

Alvaro Morata sent the hosts on their way to victory with the opening goal after 23 minutes. The Atletico Madrid striker latched on to a header across goal and tapped home from close range.

Spain doubled their lead four minutes before half-time. Santi Cazorla coolly finished off a neat team move with a clinical strike to net his first international goal for four years.

The hosts then ran riot in the second half to seal an emphatic win. Substitutes Pau Torres and Dani Olmo both grabbed debut goals, while Pablo Sarabia curled a fine effort over the goalkeeper and into the top corner.

Gerard Moreno tapped into an empty nett from a Juan Bernat cross to make it 6-0 before Jesus Navas rifled home the seventh late on to seal victory in style.
