Marco Asensio turned in arguably the best performance of his career to date as he led Spain to a thumping 6-0 victory over World Cup finalists Croatia.

Asensio scored two goals and provided three assists as La Roja turned on the style.

That would make Asensio more expensive than most Premier League clubs.
