And now this is turning into a farce. Santi Cazorla forces Shay Given into a wonderful flying save -- he's been pretty good in this match, despite conceding four times -- but Ireland completely forget to defend the subsequent corner, and it's now 4-0.
How anyone scores from a set piece when they have one player in the box is something of a mystery, but Cesc Fabregas (who came in for Fernando Torres after the Chelsea man got his brace) detached himself from his marker and made a wonderful near-post run before cracking an unbelievable shot off the far post and in for his second goal of the tournament.
This is, I suppose, a good reminder that Spain are playing against Ireland, and that Ireland are pretty terrible. They're not demolishing them because Torres gave them a spearhead or anything; they're winning because they're so much better it's not even fair. Tactics and personnel decisions don't really matter at this point.
