Football: Spain hammer woeful Germany 6-0 to book UEFA Nations League semi-final spot

Spain forward Ferran Torres scored a first career hat-trick, as his side crushed helpless Germany 6-0 at home to storm into the final four of the Nations League.

Goals from Alvaro Morata, Ferran and Rodri gave Luis Enrique's side a convincing 3-0 lead at halftime, while Ferran struck again early in the second half and completed his treble with a classy finish.

Substitute Mikel Oyarzabal tapped in the sixth goal in the 89th minute to cap an incredible Spain display and deepen four-time world champions Germany's misery.

The victory sees Spain finish atop League A4 with 11 points after six games, while the Germans, who only needed a draw to progress to the final phase, came second with nine. 

Elsewhere, Oliver Giroud bagged a brace, as France hammered Sweden 4-2 to secure a semi-final spot and reigning European champions Portugal beat 10-man Croatia 3-2. 

The remaining semi-final spots will be decided on Thursday, with Italy, Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark all in the hunt.
