Low stunned as Spain thrash Germany

Manchester City winger Ferran Torres scored his first career hat-trick as Spain inflicted Germany's heaviest competitive defeat and joined France in the four-team Nations League finals.

In a repeat of the Euro 2008 final, Juventus striker Alvaro Morata headed in Spain's first goal, before Torres volleyed home emphatically.

Rodri made it three with a guided header, and Torres slotted in a fourth before curling home the fifth.

Real Sociedad attacker Mikel Oyarzabal's tap-in made it 6-0.

Spain and France will be joined by either Belgium or Denmark from Group A2 and Italy, the Netherlands or Poland from Group A1.

Germany manager Joachim Low was given the chance to rebuild the side after elimination from the 2018 World Cup in the group stages, but with his side ranked 13th in the world, this performance suggests he has significant work to do before next year's rearranged European Championship.

Low said he didn't "know what really happened", but said he still trusts in the players.

He added: "Today we saw that we are not as far ahead in our development as we had thought and expected after the last games."
