    Time:90'
    • Spain
    • Poland
    • 90+2 The whistle goes! A 6-0 win for Spain. A splendid victory. All too easy for the home side.
    • 90' Sergio Ramos almost got his name on the scoresheet, but Poland manage to wallop the ball to safety.
    • 89' Poland have made little or no impact in this match. There will be two minutes of added time, for what it is worth.
    • 88' Spain remain way ahead on possession. 72% to 28%. The six-goal winning margin has been fully deserved.
    • 87' Heading for the final few minutes here. A wonderful send-off for Spain.
    • 85' Sergio Ramos guilty of holding at the far post. Free-kick to Poland.
    • 84' Artur Sobiech scores for Poland, but that is offside. Correct decision. He went too soon.
    • 82' Long way to go, but not many teams will fancy taking on Spain in this mood.
    • 81' This has been a real thumping. Torres looking fit and sharp. His presence led to that Pedro goal. This has been a night of good news for Spain.
    • 80' ANOTHER GOAL FOR SPAIN! Pedro makes it six. A chip over the keeper, but Tomasz Kuszczak could not keep that out.
    • 79' It will be a lot colder in South Africa's winter than here.
    • 78' Tomasz Jodlowiec comes on for Slawomir Peszka.
    • 76' More changes...Poland's Artur Sobiech replaces Robert Lewandowski.
    • 75' The crowd in Murcia certainly loving this performance.
    • 74' GOAL FOR SPAIN! GOAL FOR TORRES! NUMBER FIVE! Pedro squares the ball and Torres nets number five from close range. What a night for Spain.
    • 72' Jakub Blaszczykowski fires a right-foot shot well over from out on his left flank. Kind of sums up Poland's night.
    • 70' Marchena replaces Puyol. The Barca defender gives a wave to the fans as he departs.
    • 69' A few tasty tackles flying in out there.
    • 68' Powerful run by Torres, but Maciej Sadlok does enough to win the ball.
    • 67' Past the midway point in the second half. Here come Spain again.
    • 66' Spain's shot tally now up to nine on goal.
    • 65' What a reception for Torres. Alonso standing over a free-kick. He hoists it into the box, but Sergio Ramos just fails to connect at the back post.
    • 64' Villa off, Torres on. He is the man who scored the goal to win Euro 2008. Is he the man to win his country the World Cup?
    • 63' BIG MOMENT FOR SPAIN! Here comes Torres!
    • 62' Spain buidling through the middle. Pedro speeds in on goal, but Kuszczak dives to make a fine block.
    • 61' Navas tried his luck there, but didn't get hold of that shot. Fails to hit target.
    • 60' How many more will Spain plunder in these final 30 minutes. Worrying times for the visitors.
    • 59' That is the Arsenal midfielder's sixth goal for Spain on his 50th appearance. Terrific return after that broken leg.
    • 58' This 4-0 scoreline certainly does flatter Spain.
    • 57' A GOAL FOR SPAIN! Fabregas makes a superb run and he fires that into the net from 12 yards. Keeper left wrong footed.
    • 56' Spain really do have great strength in depth. They continue to dominate possession 72% to 28 %.
    • 55' Navas on for Silva and Fabregas on for Xavi.
    • 54' More changes. Arbeloa off for Ramos.
    • 53' Great block at the other end by Alonso with the Polish pushing forward.
    • 52' All coming together nicely here for Spain.
    • 51' GOAL FOR SPAIN! Alonso makes it three from edge of box. That was deflected off Robert Lewandowski before it hit the net.
    • 50' Alonso foulded by Maciej Sadlok. Free-kick to Spain.
    • 49' Villa goes for goal, but his shot is wide.
    • 48' Jesus Navas could be thrown on at some point after the fabulous winner he scored against the Korean last Thursday, but will we see Torres.
    • 47' Two changes at the interval for Poland. Adam Matuschyk for Adrian Mierzejewski. Maciej Rybus for Dawid Nowak.
    • 47' Could be a few more goals in this second half.
    • 46' We are underway here for the second period.
    • 45' The whistle goes for the break! A perfect first 45 minutes for Spain.
    • 44' Spain have had five shots on goal to Poland's four, but this has been as dominant a performance as you will see. Very comfortable for Del Bosque's men.
    • 43' Silva is offside as he tries to speed through the Polish defence for a third goal.
    • 42' Iniesta having a chat on the bench with the Barca keeper Victor Valdes. Injury doesn't look too serious.
    • 41' Álvaro Arbeloa drills in a low shot across the face of goal, but too near Kuszczak. He collects easily.
    • 40' Pedro Rodriguez replaces Andrés Iniesta. An injury to the Barca player.
    • 38' Peszko fires wide, but Casillas had it covered.
    • 37' Heading for the interval and Spain continue to look comfortable. Have really settled in a fluent rythmn. Poland just can't get on the ball for any time.
    • 36' Puyol takes a bit of a boot from a Polish player, but he is up and running again. Spain wouldn't want to lose him.
    • 35' Xavi tries to spring a leak in the Polish defence, but the visitors do well to get that ball out.
    • 34' Villa finds space. He tried to pick his spot, but that is any easy take by the visiting keeper Kuszczak.
    • 32' Dariusz Dudka concedes a corner, but comes to nothing for Spain.
    • 31' Spain continue to knock the ball around with some ease. Possession is ninth tenths of the law in international football.
    • 29' France managed the World Cup and European double in 1998 and 2000. Spain look every bit as clever as that French vintage.
    • 28' Poland beat San Marino 10-0 in failing to qualify for the World Cup finals - a record win. They will have to nullify the Spanish here otherwise they could be on the end of a heavy drubbing themselves.
    • 27' Silva having a wonderful game, it must be said. These Spanish players doing their chances of a start against Switzerland on June 16, no harm at all.
    • 26' Casillas, Xavi and Puyol will be appearing at their third World Cup finals. They will hope it is third time lucky.
    • 25' Poland push forward. Really good effort by Slawomir Peszko, but Casillas touches that around a post. Terrific reflexes.
    • 24' Dariusz Dudka flies over to prevent Villa speeding in on goal. Spain continue their domination.
    • 23' Those teams again for you..Spain: Casillas, Capdevila, Puyol, Pique, Arbeloa, Xavi, Busquets, Alonso, Iniesta, Villa, Silva Poland: Kuszczak, Dudka, Wojtkowiak, Zewlakow, Mierzejewski, Blaszczykowski, Glik, Murawski, Robak, Peszko, R, Lewandowski
    • 22' Spain can go again here. Continuing to pen Poland back. Xavi floats in a cross that just misses Villa. Any touch from Villa and that would have been 3-0 to the home side.
    • 21' Blaszczykowski floats a corner in for Poland, but that is a comfortable take for Casillas.
    • 20' Six of the starting line-up are from Barcelona and there is a certain Barca style about their play here this evening.
    • 19' Spain keen to put on a show here you sense before they depart for the World Cup.
    • 18' Silva, Villa and Xavi all linking well and most importantly, all looking fresh.
    • 17' This looks like the Spain that won those European Championships so impressive two years ago. Real feeling in Spain that this can be there year.
    • 16' Perhaps a question mark over offside, but was still a tremendous finish.
    • 15' What a start for the home side. This has been a dream opening 15 minutes.
    • 14' SECOND GOAL FOR SPAIN! David Silva slots a left footed shot into the bottom right hard corner. This time Xavi was the supplier.
    • 12' Lewandowski hammers in a shot from 35 yards, but that is well over from the Poles.
    • 11' GOAL FOR SPAIN! Classic goal from Villa. Great ball from Iniesta. He couldn't miss as he knocked it into the bottom right corner.
    • 9' Casillas down to clasp the ball with Lewandowski in the area.
    • 8' Spain looking dangerous. Villa looking in the mood in the forward areas.
    • 7' Carles Puyol restored to Spain's first team for tonight's match.
    • 5' A lot of debate about what is Spain's strongest team, but this certainly cannot be far off full strength.
    • 4' Spain dominating early possession as you can imagine enjoying 67% of possession to 33%.
    • 3' Poland of course building for the European Championship, which they host with Ukraine in 2012.
    • '2 Spain will be looking to grab a victory at home here. They were underwhelming in beating South Korea 1-0 last week. They know they have room to go up several gears.
    • '1 We are underway here.
    • Cesc Fabregas and Fernando Torres are on the bench tonight for the Spanish. Be interesting to see if the Liverpool striker is given a run here.
    • Good evening and welcome to coverage of Spain's final warm-up match ahead of the World Cup finals. They take on Poland in Murcia.
