Spain vs. Tahiti, 2013 Confederations Cup: Final score 10-0, which is really unfortunate

Alexandre Loureiro

That was mean, Spain.

Tahiti had a rough night against Spain on Thursday. Against Nigeria, they got the crowd behind them and managed to score a goal. Against Spain, they were overrun from the beginning. Instead of holding their own for the opening minutes, they were outclassed from the start and eventually went down, 10-0.

One cool thing happened to Tahiti during this game: Fernando Torres missed a penalty and their goalkeeper celebrated like he had something to do with it.


And that was it. Torres scored four goals and probably should have had 10. David Villa had a hat trick as well, while David Silva netted two and Juan Mata scored the remaining goal. Tahiti hilariously tried to play a high defensive line against Spain instead of packing men behind the ball and it worked as expected.

If you're wondering: No, this is not Spain's biggest victory ever. They once beat Bulgaria by a score of 13-0. It is, however, the biggest margin of victory in this or any FIFA senior international tournament, surpassing the previous record of nine.
