Seville (Spain), Nov. 18 (AP/PTI): Spain booked its place in the Nation League Final Four in style, inflicting the heaviest loss for Germany in 89 years.

Ferran Torres on Tuesday scored a hat-trick in a 6-0 win for Spain, which now heads to the semifinals as group winner. The win showed off Spain’s strength in depth to keep scoring after a raft of substitutions in attack.

France had already qualified for the Final Four and remained unbeaten in a 4-2 win over Sweden, which was relegated. Ruben Dias’ late goal gave Portugal a 3-2 win over Croatia.

Only three out of four games in League A were played as Switzerland’s game with Ukraine was canceled following a coronavirus outbreak in the Ukrainian squad. The Final Four is scheduled for October 2021.
