World Cup champion Spain overwhelmed the U.S. 4-0 in an international friendly that the Americans used to tune up for the Gold Cup Saturday.
Santi Cazorla scored twice as Spain avenged a loss in the semifinals of the 2009 Confederations Cup, when the Americans won 2-0 to snap top-ranked Spain's 35-match winning streak. Alvaro Negredo and Fernando Torres also scored for Spain, which started just six of the 11 players it began the World Cup final with last July.
It was the most one-sided loss for the Americans since a 5-0 defeat by Mexico in the 2009 Gold Cup final.
