The Croats were made to pay in a big way, starting when Saul Niguez opened the scoring on 24 minutes, timing his run from deep to perfection to leap above Matej Mitrovic and thump Carvajal's cross into the bottom corner.

Marco Asensio scored his first worldwide goal and guided Spain to an emphatic 6-0 win over Croatia on Tuesday night in UEFA Nations League action.

The result is their heaviest ever defeat, the first time they have conceded six goals and the first game in which they have let in five since a 5-1 loss to England in 2009.

Croatia's midfielder Ivan Rakitic reacts after Spain scored a goal during the UEFA Nations League A group 4 football match between Spain and Croatia at the Manuel Martinez Valero stadium in Elche on September 11, 2018.

It got worse for Croatia before the break as Asensio grabbed two memorable goals in the space of two minutes, first blasting beyond Kalinic from 25 yards before driving towards the box and curling a stunning effort that smacked the crossbar and went in off the unfortunate goalkeeper. Sergio Ramos added to the scoreline with a header from Asensio's corner after some awful marking.

Luis Enrique's side tore apart the World Cup finalists, with goals coming from six different sources including an own goal by Lovre Kalinic.

He promised evolution, not revolution, and while his team still dominated possession, they were faster, more direct and less predictable in the final third.

Enrique took over Spain after the team's elimination against Russian Federation in the round of 16 of the World Cup.

The hosts took their foot off the gas for the final quarter of an hour although Rodrigo and Isco still had chances to pile more humilation on Zlatko Dalic's side, who were handed a stark reality check on the back of their run in Russian Federation.

Croatia will hope to get their first Nations League points when they host England next month. "After the second goal, the match was over for us". In the 57th minute, Spain captain Sergio Ramos headed in his 14th global goal for the team's fifth on the night.

The victory left Spain comfortably ahead in Group 4 of the top-tiered League A in Europe's newest soccer competition, in good position to reach the tournament's final four in June.

"It's a great challenge to play against Luka in the Spanish league and it's even better to play with him for our country", Rakitic said.
