2022年世界盃:7-0痛擊遺憾的哥斯達黎加讓西班牙成為競爭者?

無論英格蘭能做什麼,西班牙都能做得更好......但在揭幕戰中痛擊無能的對手,真的能讓任何人立即成為世界盃競爭者嗎?

這應該出現在他們的下一場比賽中,即周日對陣德國隊的比賽中,德國隊在被日本隊擊敗後將為他們在本屆比賽中的未來而戰。

當然,對於西班牙和他們在Al Thumama體育場的支持者來說,仍有許多值得回味的東西,尤其是加維將比分改寫為5-0,但從一開始就很明顯,這是一場巨大的錯誤比賽,比分反映了雙方之間的巨大差距。

哥斯達黎加是最後一支有資格參加卡塔爾世界盃的球隊,由於在6月的附加賽中戰勝了新西蘭,但如果沒有巨大的改進,他們看起來很可能成為第一批被淘汰的球隊之一。

西班牙隊太過輕鬆地撕開了他們的防線,有時直接在球場的中間位置,當費蘭-托雷斯將一個點球變成3-0後,比賽就結束了。

在下半場,他們繼續一波接一波地向前推進,即使在恩里克做了大量的改變之後,仍然有更多的進球--就像英格蘭一樣,他們的一些替補球員也參與了進球。

哥斯達黎加不僅被超越--他們以241比1,043被超越--他們還被淘汰了,而且沒有一次射門。他們最接近的一次是在西班牙區域的四次觸球,每半場兩次。

前英格蘭後衛加里-內維爾認為,這些令人遺憾的數據更多的是表明2014年的四分之一決賽選手有多麼糟糕,而不是西班牙有多麼優秀。

內維爾在ITV上說:"西班牙隊做得很好,他們已經完成了他們的工作"。"我認為哥斯達黎加在下半場不能再糟糕了,但他們超越了他們上半場的表現。他們猶豫不決。他們是一個爛攤子。

"我完全不能就這樣來衡量西班牙。哥斯達黎加是32年來第一支沒有射門的球隊,這不可能發生。

"他們已經參加過多次世界盃了。今天在那裡什麼都沒有。我不知道剛剛發生了什麼。

"西班牙保持着球權,我們知道,但對於一支擁有豐富經驗的球隊來說,這已經是很糟糕了。"

前英格蘭門將羅布-格林在BBC電台5台直播中補充說。"西班牙隊一直很出色,但我很想說這場比賽並不能說明他們在本屆比賽中的很多情況。對手的實力,哥斯達黎加真的沒有讓我們感到困難。

"他們讓西班牙在公園裡散步。現實地說,西班牙在下半場所做的換人,他們是在給年輕人加油,讓老腿休息;哥斯達黎加知道比賽已經結束了。"

當然,你可以爭辯說,不允許你的對手看到進球,而自己卻進了7個球,這並不是什麼好事,而西班牙足球專家Guillem Balague更願意關注西班牙的積極因素。

巴拉格告訴5號現場。"這只是完美的表現,你可以看到在三個球之後哥斯達黎加已經放棄了。

"但哥斯達黎加有多少次射門?或嘗試?零。在世界盃上,你不會得到這種類型的表現,就像你不會得到英格蘭對伊朗的那種表現一樣。

"我們談論的是同樣的水平。目前看來,他們是領先於其他球隊的。"

也許我們最好不要去想西班牙這場勝利的規模意味着什麼,而是專注於他們這一次讓他們的世界盃有了一個勝利的開始。

他們在之前的三屆比賽中都輸掉了揭幕戰,包括2010年的南非世界盃,他們在那裡贏得了比賽--而且當時對他們的前景過早下結論顯然是不明智的。

這一次是德國和阿根廷被打亂了陣腳,而在這個頭幾天就充滿了令人震驚的結果的比賽中,西班牙的年輕明星如加維和佩德利反而發出了一個意向聲明,他們可能是在未來幾周造成一些驚喜的人。

格林。"這正是西班牙需要的。進入這場比賽後,他們有一些問題,年輕球員進來後,他們能找到並拿出答案嗎?嗯,這對他們來說是一次完美的訓練,因為這幾乎就是他們的情況。

"這不是一場比賽,而是一場熱身賽。接下來會有更大的比賽,但如果你在一場比賽中獲得超過1000次的傳球,那麼這就是一個令人難以置信的成就。"

西班牙人的判決是什麼?

可以理解的是,西班牙的球員似乎對他們的表現以及結果相當滿意。

打進西班牙隊第100個世界盃進球的Dani Olmo說。"我不認為這是一個關於哥斯達黎加不好的問題。這是關於我們的團隊是強大的。

"我認為這場勝利是我們應得的。在與他們的比賽中,我們配得上勝利。我認為我們的團隊很強大,這就是我們需要遵循的道路。這肯定是一種信心的提升。"

Whatever England can do, Spain can do better… but does thrashing hapless opposition in your opening game really turn anyone into instant World Cup contenders?

That should come in their next match, on Sunday against a Germany side who will be fighting for their future in this tournament after their shock defeat by Japan.

There was still much to savour for Spain and their supporters at Al Thumama Stadium, of course, especially Gavi's delicious volley to make it 5-0, but it was evident from the start that this was a giant mis-match and the scoreline reflected the huge gulf between the two sides.

Costa Rica were the last team to qualify for Qatar, thanks to a play-off victory over New Zealand in June, but barring a huge improvement they look likely to be one of the first teams to be eliminated.

Spain ripped through them far too easily, sometimes straight down the middle of the pitch, and the game was finished as a contest after barely half an hour when Ferran Torres converted a penalty to make it 3-0.

They kept coming forward in waves in the second half and more goals followed even after Enrique made a raft of changes - like England some of their substitutes got involved in the scoring.

Costa Rica were not just out-passed - they managed 241 to 1,043 - they were also outclassed, and failed to muster a single shot at goal. The closest they got to that was four touches in the Spain area, two in each half.

Former England defender Gary Neville saw those sorry statistics as more of a sign of how bad the 2014 quarter-finalists were, rather than how good Spain were.

"Well done to Spain they've done their job," Neville said on ITV. "I didn't think Costa Rica could get any worse in the second half but they surpassed their first-half performance. They were hesitant. They were a mess.

"I can't just measure Spain at all on that. Costa Rica are the first team in 32 years to not have a shot at goal, that can't happen.

"They've had multiple World Cups. There was nothing out there today. I have no idea what's just happened.

"Spain keep the ball, we know that, but that is as bad as it gets for a team that has got a lot of experience."

Former England goalkeeper Rob Green added on BBC Radio 5 live: "Spain have been brilliant but I'm tempted to say this game won't tell us a lot about them in this tournament. The strength of the opposition, Costa Rica really haven't made it difficult.

"They made it a walk in the park for Spain. Realistically, the substitutions Spain made in the second half, they were blooding youngsters, resting old legs; Costa Rica knew the game was up."

You could argue, of course, that not allowing your opposition a sight of goal while scoring seven yourself is not to be sniffed at, and Spanish football expert Guillem Balague preferred to focus on the positives for Spain.

Balague told 5 live: "It was just the perfect performance, you could see after three goals Costa Rica had given up.

"But how many shots on target for Costa Rica? Or attempts? Zero. In the World Cup, you don't get these type of performances, the same way you don't get the type of performances England gave against Iran.

"We're talking about the same kind of level. They are, at the moment it seems, ahead of the rest."

Maybe we are better off not thinking about what the size of this Spain victory means and instead focus on the fact they have, for once, got their World Cup off to a winning start.

They had lost their opening match at their previous three tournaments, including in South Africa 2010 where they went on to win it - and it was clearly unwise to jump to any early conclusions about their prospects back then.

It is Germany and Argentina who have been upset this time and, in a tournament that has been full of shock results in its first few days, Spain's young stars like Gavi and Pedri instead sent out a statement of intent that they could be the ones causing some surprises in the coming weeks.

Green: "It's what Spain needed. Coming into this tournament they had a few questions, young players coming in, can they find and come up with answers? Well, it's been a perfect training session for them because that's pretty much what it has been.

"It's not been a contest, it's been a warm up. There will be bigger games to come but if you're getting more than 1,000 passes in a game, then that's an incredible achievement."

What was the Spanish verdict?

Understandably, Spain's players seemed pretty pleased with their performance, as well as the outcome.

Dani Olmo, who opened the scoring with what was Spain's 100th World Cup goal, said: "I don't think it was a question of Costa Rica being bad. It was about our team being strong.

"I think the win was what we were due. We deserved to win after taking the game to them. I think our team is strong and that is the path that we need to follow. It was a confidence boost for sure."
