Spanish team celebrating a goal/Twitter

Paco Alcacer on Thursday scored twice to help Spain crush Wales 4-1 as on-loan Borussia Dortmund forward makes case for a regular place in the team.

Injury to Diego Costa and Rodrigo being on the bench, means Alcacer seized his chance to impress Spain boss Luis Enrique in his first international appearance since March 2016.

The 25-year-old maintained his blistering club form to leave the Wales defence in tatters in a one-sided friendly at the Principality Stadium.

Alcacer netted twice in the first half to make it eight goals in 14 Spain appearances, while Sergio Ramos and Marc Bartra were also on target for the visitors.

Alcacer has scored seven goals in four matches for Dortmund since joining on loan from Barcelona, where he struggled to break into the team and was rarely picked by Enrique during his time in charge at the Camp Nou.
