David Silva scored twice and Alvaro Morata also found the net as Spain beat Costa Rica 5-0 in a friendly on Saturday.
Manchester City's Silva got his double after playing a part in Spain's opening two strikes at La Rosaleda Stadium in Malaga.
A cross by Silva took a deflection before it reached Jordi Alba for the Barcelona left-back to score six minutes in.
Chelsea striker Morata doubled the advantage by finishing off a loose ball that fell to him after Silva initiated another attack.
Silva added his goals in the 51st and 55th minutes, first finishing after a poor clearance before he drove a second under goalkeeper Danny Carvajal. The goals were his 34th and 35th for Spain in his 117th match.
Andres Iniesta scored Spain's fifth from long range.
Coach Julen Lopetegui gave goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga his debut while midfielder Luis Alberto also debuted as a late substitute.
The only drawback for Spain was Real Madrid's Isco asking to be substituted midway through the second half. The playmaker rubbed his left thigh as he walked off the pitch.
Spain travel to Russia to face the World Cup hosts in St Petersburg on Tuesday.
