RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- World Cup champion Spain routed the Pacific

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- World Cup champion Spain routed the Pacific islanders from Tahiti 10-0 on Thursday at the Confederations Cup -- a result that wasnt as bad as some had suggested beforehand. Tahiti coach Eddy Etaeta said he feared Spain might get as many as 20 goals. Still, the winning margin was the largest in a Confederations Cup match. The previous record margin for the World Cup test-run tournament was six, when Brazil beat Saudi Arabia 8-2 in 1999 and when Brazil beat Australia 6-0 in 1997. Fernando Torres, who missed a penalty late in the match, scored four goals. David Villa added three goals, David Silva two and Juan Mata one. Tahiti was the crowd favourite at the Maracana stadium with Brazilians wildly cheering the underdogs and jeering Spain. When Spanish midfielder Mata tried to score with a bicycle kick with the score at 4-0, the effort was met with loud booing. "They (Brazilians) are always on the side of the underdog, meaning Tahiti," Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said. "I believe the fans respected the show and enjoyed the match." Torres miss from a penalty late also drew wild cheers. The ball bounded off the crossbar and Tahiti keeper Mikael Roche raised his hands in celebration -- as if hed stopped it. The match had the tone of a practice game -- or an exhibition. Even before it began, the outcome was never in doubt. The spirit was set by Tahiti coach Eddy Etaeta, who put a flower lei around the neck of Spanish coach Vicente del Bosque. Etaeta, who called playing Spain a "Christmas present," warned before the match that Spain might score 15 or 20 goals. "We lost 10-0 but we won the hearts of the Brazilian public. So obrigado, obrigados a tudos," he said after the game, saying Thank You everyone in Portuguese. Etaeta said it was frustrating that his team was now better known in Brazil than at home. Tahitian players also draped trinkets around the neck of the Spanish players just before the start, another gesture of friendship and respect. Tahiti attacked from the start and was just 1-0 down after 15 minutes, making light of the gulf between the world champions and a team made up of amateurs who hold down day jobs. But that did not last long, with Spain leading 4-0 at the break. The match was lopsided, but there have been worse. The Tahitians tired in the second half and only found their way into the Spanish half a handful of times. Spain added six and could easily have added plenty more. Despite letting in 10, Roche made several fine saves to the joy of the Brazilian crowd. "They would have loved to have scored one single goal," Etaeta said. "It didnt happen, theres something missing really. Theyre a bit disappointed." The match was lopsided, but there have been worse. The largest margin of victory in a FIFA match came in 2001, when Australia beat American Samoa 31-0 in Oceania qualifying for the World Cup. In the World Cup, the record is nine, set three times. Hungary beat South Korea 9-0 in 1954, Yugoslavia routed Zaire 9-0 in 1974 and Hungary defeated El Salvador 10-1 in 1982. The biggest rout in soccer history happened in 2002 when Stade Olympique de lEmyrne scored 149 own-goals in a match against AS Adema in Madagascar in protest of what it claimed was partial refereeing.

Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night.Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink says he favours direct football over the possession-based game Manchester Uniteds Louis van Gaal values so highly. The Dutchmen go head-to-head live on Sky Sports 1 on Super Sunday at Stamford Bridge, with Hiddink looking to maintain his unbeaten run in his second spell as Blues interim coach.United are still chasing a top-four spot and are better placed after last weeks 3-0 win over Stoke. However, Van Gaals style and approach has repeatedly come under scrutiny this season and Hiddink can see why. Louis van Gaal has been criticised by some Manchester United fans for the teams style of play You must not overrate the percentage of possession, Hiddink said. Say we had 65, 67 and 70 per cent possession, but there were opponents who said we dont care how much possession you have, we have the score on our side.Its what you do with possession. Most teams want to have the ball, but what do you do with the ball? Do you secure your way of playing? Or do you go as soon as possible into the attack? The latter option I prefer. I think the first thought must be vertical. Diagonal or vertical.United have toiled in front of goal this season with supporters urging their players to attack, but Hiddink, who succeeded Jose Mourinho in December, says Chelsea did until recently too. Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois discusses the clubs season [Supporters] like to see - also what we like to see - more goals, Hiddink added.dddddddddddd They like to see also more play in the box. But we had the same problem weeks ago.There are not many exceptions. We like to see very attractive teams, when you are passionate about football.Hiddink says merely keeping the ball is not enough in England, where the speed of the game has survived the influx and influence of foreign coaches. Guus Hiddink says Chelsea versus Manchester United is still a big match When possession is there, to just play possession in your back four with a goalie and you play wide without having any intention to go vertical, this is a country which doesnt allow that, Hiddink added.Its nice. It also showed the influence of a manager is there, but the culture of English football is there. If managers want to break that down, the public and everyone doesnt accept that.Of course, the manager determines and does a lot and shows the way. But in the end players probably decide what to do. The managers are important, but if we like, in England, the pace of the games and the fight, box to box, thats a style which is for England. Chelsea are unbeaten under Guus Hiddink this season Thats why this league is very important. Theres no moment you have to wake up your neighbour while he is sleeping. Influence of coaches is limited to that extent.
