It was the heaviest defeat suffered by defending world champions at the tournament.
Well, what do you expect when you have much-maligned pop singer Justin Bieber - a figure not known for shying away from adverse publicity - throwing his weight behind you? Bieber is apparently due to take anger management courses.
Hopefully, he wasn't watching the Spanish suffer their most serious beating in years. He would have kicked off. Unlike the Spanish.
