Share |

Spain took a big step to be in the World Cup Germany 2006 when they beated Slovakia 5-1 on Saturday. The scenario was Vicente Calderon stadium and the main showman was Luis Garcia scoring a hat trick.

Atletico Madrid's Torres converted a penalty and Morientes added the fifth goal. Substitute Szilard Nemeth netted Slovakia's consolation goal early in the second half following a mistake by Garcia.

Italian referee Massimo De Santis ejected Slovakia coach Galis and defender Marian Had for protesting. Galis went after Garcia's second goal and Had was sent off after the penalty.

"In the World Cup, you have the best players and the best squads," Galis said. "You should also have the best referees. We knew we could lose but we didn't think it would happen in this way. Some of the refereeing decisions were incredible."
