1372021843366 Spains opener v Nigeria, scored by Jordi Alba, was a Tiki Taka masterpiece [all passes]With Jordi Alba riding three challenges before firing Spain ahead in the third minute of their final Confederations Cup group game, it felt like the Barcelona full back did most of the work.

Indeed, the majority of replays simply showed Alba bursting into the box and the left-footed finish past Vincent Enyeama.

But, if you take a longer look at the goal it was a hugely impressive team move, showcasing the Tiki-Taka football that we have become accustomed to from the World and European champions.

It began with a goal kick from Victor Valdes, continued with some passing at the back before a collection of Barcelona midfielders worked the ball in for Alba.

It deserves a watch from the very beginning. (Via @allas4)
