A hat-trick and an Assistazo: Spain & Pedro pulverise Belarus
Belarus 0 – Spain 4 (World Cup Qualifier, October 12, 2012) (Alternative highlights) Cesc Fabregas hit the post early on from a tight angle. David Silva beat the offside trap but somehow managed to completely blow the chance with all the time in the world. Jordi Alba scored first for Spain, latching onto an awesome Pedro back-heel. Pedro himself got the second with a nice finish. David Silva pulled off a great nutmegs, then set up Cesc, who just missed out with a Gazza-slide. In the 69th minute Pedro chipped Spain into a 3-nil lead, and minutes later Pedro completed a hat-trick with a cool finished after he lifted the ball over the keeper.
