Germany suffers humiliating 6-0 defeat to Spain in Nations League

November 18, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

It was a history-making night for the German national team, but for all the wrong reasons.

The 2014 World Cup winner was humiliated 6-0 by Spain in the final Nations League group stage match on Tuesday, the heaviest competitive defeat in the country's history.

And this on his 96th international appearance, as the Bayern star broke Sepp Maier's record to become Germany's most-capped goalkeeper.

Goals from Alvaro Morata, Rodri, Mikel Oyarzabal and a stunning hat-trick from 20-year-old Ferran Torres secured Spain's place in the Nations League finals, which will take place in October 2021.

Torres, playing only his seventh match for the Spanish national team, tore Germany's defense apart.

In his few Premier League appearances so far, Torres has shown flashes of the brilliance that convinced coach Pep Guardiola the 20-yeear-old was the man to replace German Leroy Sane in City's attack, but Tuesday night's performance will undoubtedly have put increased expectations on his shoulders.

Low has been in charge of the national team since 2006 and was afforded the opportunity to rebuild following Germany's disastrous group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup. However, with the rearranged European Championship set to start in June, the pressure will be on for Low to prove he is the man to once again take this country to the top.
