Spain Thrash Argentina 6 – 1 in Friendly



Diego Costa was taken off injured as Isco scored a hat-trick in Spain’s huge 6-1 victory over Argentina at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

Costa put himself in harm’s way to slide in Spain’s opening goal 12 minutes in, but was immediately taken off injured after colliding with Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

The former Chelsea striker looked distraught as he was replaced, while Manchester United back-up Romero was also forced off soon after.

Isco put Spain in control with the second of the game after just 27 minutes, but Nicolas Otamendi gave Argentina – without talismanic captain Lionel Messi – hope with a goal shortly before half-time.

But Argentina faded badly after the break as Isco scored two more to complete his hat-trick either side of goals from Thiago Alcantara and Iago Aspas to show the South American nation just how much pressure rests on Messi’s shoulders in Russia this summer.
