RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- World Cup champion Spain routed the Pacific islanders from Tahiti 10-0 on Thursday at the Confederations Cup -- a result that wasnt as bad as some had suggested beforehand. Cheap Sharks Jerseys . Tahiti coach Eddy Etaeta said he feared Spain might get as many as 20 goals. Still, the winning margin was the largest in a Confederations Cup match. The previous record margin for the World Cup test-run tournament was six, when Brazil beat Saudi Arabia 8-2 in 1999 and when Brazil beat Australia 6-0 in 1997. Fernando Torres, who missed a penalty late in the match, scored four goals. David Villa added three goals, David Silva two and Juan Mata one. Tahiti was the crowd favourite at the Maracana stadium with Brazilians wildly cheering the underdogs and jeering Spain. When Spanish midfielder Mata tried to score with a bicycle kick with the score at 4-0, the effort was met with loud booing. "They (Brazilians) are always on the side of the underdog, meaning Tahiti," Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said. "I believe the fans respected the show and enjoyed the match." Torres miss from a penalty late also drew wild cheers. The ball bounded off the crossbar and Tahiti keeper Mikael Roche raised his hands in celebration -- as if hed stopped it. The match had the tone of a practice game -- or an exhibition. Even before it began, the outcome was never in doubt. The spirit was set by Tahiti coach Eddy Etaeta, who put a flower lei around the neck of Spanish coach Vicente del Bosque. Etaeta, who called playing Spain a "Christmas present," warned before the match that Spain might score 15 or 20 goals. "We lost 10-0 but we won the hearts of the Brazilian public. So obrigado, obrigados a tudos," he said after the game, saying Thank You everyone in Portuguese. Etaeta said it was frustrating that his team was now better known in Brazil than at home. Tahitian players also draped trinkets around the neck of the Spanish players just before the start, another gesture of friendship and respect. Tahiti attacked from the start and was just 1-0 down after 15 minutes, making light of the gulf between the world champions and a team made up of amateurs who hold down day jobs. But that did not last long, with Spain leading 4-0 at the break. The match was lopsided, but there have been worse. The Tahitians tired in the second half and only found their way into the Spanish half a handful of times. Spain added six and could easily have added plenty more. Despite letting in 10, Roche made several fine saves to the joy of the Brazilian crowd. "They would have loved to have scored one single goal," Etaeta said. "It didnt happen, theres something missing really. Theyre a bit disappointed." The match was lopsided, but there have been worse. The largest margin of victory in a FIFA match came in 2001, when Australia beat American Samoa 31-0 in Oceania qualifying for the World Cup. In the World Cup, the record is nine, set three times. Hungary beat South Korea 9-0 in 1954, Yugoslavia routed Zaire 9-0 in 1974 and Hungary defeated El Salvador 10-1 in 1982. The biggest rout in soccer history happened in 2002 when Stade Olympique de lEmyrne scored 149 own-goals in a match against AS Adema in Madagascar in protest of what it claimed was partial refereeing.

Bryant, who had three hits and reached base four times, followed with his tiebreaking hit to put the Cubs back ahead.I just go out and try to make something happen, Szczur said.

There were too many pitches elevated again today. Thats really been the one common theme, is location. With better location down, hes been much more efficient.Niese has lost five of his past six starts and is 7-7 after beginning the season 6-2.Im really done worrying about my mechanics, Niese said. As long as Im executing pitches, thats all that matters. So, this All-Star break is going to be good. Its a good reset button.
