They played some scintillating football and Costa Rica could not get close to them thanks to some clever movement and intricate passing.

Spain recorded an incredible 82 per cent possession - a new record for the World Cup since data was first collected in 1966.

The 2010 World Cup winners completed an astonishing 976 passes out of the 1043 they attempted.

That means they have pipped the previous record of 80 per cent possession held by Argentina following their game against Greece in 2010.

Barcelona midfielder Gavi also set a record by becoming Spain's youngest player to ever score at the World Cup.

It was just the latest achievement for the wonderkid, who won the Golden Boy and Kopa Trophy awards earlier this year.

He was already his country’s youngest-ever goal scorer, having netted against the Czech Republic in June’s Nations League match aged 17 years and 304 days.

However, Gavi’s World Cup goal on Wednesday also saw him shatter a 64-year-old record held by none other than football legend Pele.

The Brazil icon is the youngest-ever goal scorer in World Cup history, netting against Wales in 1958 aged 17.

German legend Oliver Bierhoff quits as sporting director after horror show at World Cup 2022

GERMANY legend Oliver Bierhoff is the first managerial casualty of his nation's embarrassing World Cup exit.

The former striker agreed to resign as managing director of the country's national football teams and academy.

It comes after Germany went out at the group stage in Qatar after managing just four points from their matches against Japan, Spain and Costa Rica, crashing out on goal difference.

The German federation said Bierhoff agreed to prematurely end his contract that was due to run through the 2024 Euros.

Germany is set to host that tournament but there are concerns about the team's direction after a second successive World Cup exit at the group stage.

The failure comes after their second-round exit at England's hands at Euro 2020 last year.

Bierhoff had been working for the German FA since 2004, with the nation winning the World Cup in 2014 and the Conferedations Cup in 2017, both under his watch.

They also reached the final of Euro 2008 and made it to three more semi-finals in major competitions in that time. However, after falling short in Qatar, Bierhoff decided to step aside.

In a statement, he said: “I’ve told German FA president Bernd Neuendorf of my decision today.

“I’m clearing the path for setting a new course.”

He added: “My work was founded upon the conviction of doing my best for the German FA and the national teams.

“But that only makes the results of the men’s national team at the World Cups in Russia and Qatar more painful. That’s why I’m not leaving without the necessary self-criticism.

“We didn’t manage to repeat previous successes and to give supporters reason to cheer in the last four years.

“Some decisions we had been convinced of turned out wrong. No one regrets that more than me. I take responsibility for that.”
