Spain Not Staying Down for Long

The Spanish were taken lightly at the 2014 World Cup, but maybe now they can truly be called La Furia Roja again.

A superb comeback against Costa Rica to register a 2-1 result will do that.

Remember, the Ricans were a revelation in Brazil but couldn't manage to rise to that level against the massive Spaniards.

Spain then roared back with an immediate response:

Now, that's classic Spain. Quick movement and passes with a final KO punch.

Keylor Navas didn't even know what hit him.

Then, it was a touch of déjà vu to dismantle Los Ticos, which it worked brilliantly.

If only the Spanish rolled out performances like this in Brazil.

After all, their World Cup was an embarrassment.
