Liverpool fans think they know exactly why Spain thumped Croatia 6-0

Luis Enrique shouts instructions to his players during a training session on Monday afternoon

The ex-Barcelona coach replaced Fernando Hierro, who oversaw Spain's World Cup bid after the Spanish FA sacked Julen Lopetegui a day before the finals in Russian Federation.

Spain's Sergio Ramos celebrates after scoring the fifth goal against Croatia during the Uefa Nations League, September 11, 2018.

Elsewhere, Belgium play their first competitive game since securing third place at the World Cup with a 2-0 victory over England in Group A2, as they travel to Iceland, in one of six games available to watch on Sky Sports Football via the red button.

Spain followed its gritty 2-1 win against England at Wembley Stadium last week with a 6-0 rout of World Cup runner-up Croatia on Tuesday, keeping Enrique ideal since taking over as La Roja's coach. However, it is the biggest defeat in Croatia's history, so it was a dismal day for them.

The hosts soon increased their lead with two thumping strikes from Marco Asensio, the second of which was given as an own goal to Croatia goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic as it bounced off him after crashing against the crossbar.

Croatia's Ivan Santini was guilty of missing early on but once Spain pulled ahead, the visitors crumbled. Sergio Ramos added to the scoreline with a header from Asensio's corner after some terrible marking.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, right, and Li Zhanshu, the third-highest ranking official in the ruling Communist Party of China. But the only ones on show were the blue Kumsong-3, an anti-ship cruise missile, and the Pongae-5 surface-to-air weapon.

Asensio, winning his 16th cap on the evening finished with one goal and an incredible four assists - while the central midfield pairing of Dani Ceballos and Saul Niguez showed great promise.

Luis Enrique couldn't have asked for a much better start as coach of Spain's national team.

Luis Enrique's charges got their campaign underway over the weekend with a 2-1 win over England at Wembley Stadium. Three superbly weighted deliveries of different styles gifted his side further goals in the second half and underlined his remarkable quality. During the Russia World Cup, they were the most represented club with six players.

The centre-back was consistently excellent in Russian Federation but was given a torrid time here.

To reach the Nations League finals next June, Spain need just two points from their remaining two games, at home to England and away to Croatia. But Spain weren't finished, 8 minutes later, Serjio Ramos scored the 5th from a corner kick.
