Spain recovered from Thursday's shock 2-1 defeat to Slovakia by hammering Luxembourg 4-0 on Sunday night.

Spain's shocking 2014 World Cup campaign led to huge question marks over not only Vicente del Bosque's reign in charge, but also a number of experienced members of the squad - despite having won the 2008 and 2012 European Championships as well as the 2010 World Cup.

Those murmurings of discontent got considerably louder on Thursday, with Spain falling to a shock 2-1 defeat to Slovakia in their 2016 European Championship qualifier. Goals from Juraj Kucka and Miroslav Stoch handed Slovakia a shock victory, leaving del Bosque to make a number of changes for their game against Luxembourg.

The alterations worked, with Spain coasting to a 4-0 win over Luxembourg. Goals from David Silva, Paco Alcacer, Diego Costa and Juan Bernat handed Spain a much needed three points after a difficult week for del Bosque and co. The result leaves Spain in second place behind Slovakia in Group C, with six points from three games.
