And the former Porto coach was pleased with his side's performance, telling reporters after the match: "El Molinon? I'd like all our stadiums to be bursting [with life].

"It creates more of an atmosphere. We must thank the fans who came because they didn't stop supporting us.

"I liked the intensity in our movement of the ball. At 3-0 up, we played less collectively, but overall it was a good match from us.

"We stuck with our mentality. We scored four, but we were able to score many more. I'll stick with the collective, it's the way forward.

An impressive Spain scored four goals against Israel on Friday.

"There's no other way to compete at the highest level. Our objective is to get three points in each match. Before Italy comes the game against Macedonia, so we can't think about Italy yet.

"Israel are a good team and we overcame them because we did things well, not because Israel were poor.

"Thiago? He had a little knock and that's why we decided to change him at half-time.

"Iniesta hasn't been playing much, so we thought it was a good time for Isco to come on."
