Torres hails Tahiti spirit

Fernando Torres believes Spain can carry the goodwill and determination displayed by the Tahiti team they decimated 10-0 on Thursday for the remainder of the Confederations Cup.

Torres scored four goals in the thrashing, while David Villa netted a hat-trick, David Silva bagged a brace and Juan Mata chimed in with another goal.

The emphatic win puts Spain atop the Group B standings, but Torres claims his team will take much more from the contest than just three points.

"What we take from this game is the example the Tahiti team, who played with 100 per cent passion and fair play until the end," said Torres.

"They try to play properly, they try to enjoy themselves. They don't try to stop the game or kick players - they enjoy their football and that is the big thing we take from the game today.

"We were taking pictures with their players after the game. They are happy people and I really enjoyed seeing them smiling and enjoying themselves until the last minute."

Meanwhile, Tahiti boss Eddy Etaeta was proud of the performance from his charges, stating they had "won over hearts" from fans in Brazil.

"It's quite difficult when you get thrashed 10-0 but my players tried to really play football. They did their utmost to perform as well as possible - but at some point you've got to defend your goal better," he explained.

"We had overwhelming support from all the public in the Maracana. It's very very important to us. We wanted to reach the hearts of the Brazilian public and I think we've done that.

"We lost the match 10-0 but we won over hearts in Brazil. I want to say a big, big thank you to the Brazilian public."
