VIDEO: Juan Mata’s lovely nutmeg goal | Spain vs Australia

by Sam Peoples

Juan Mata made an almost immediate impact on the World Cup with a superb goal for Spain against Australia.

Taking the ball down sweetly, Mata struck it between the goalkeeper’s legs to give Spain a comfortable 3-0 lead.

He made it look easy but that was a very accomplished finish from Mata.
 

 
In a roundabout way, Mata not being heavily involved in Spain’s embarrassing World Cup campaign means his reputation won’t have been impacted by it and looking forward to the future, he and De Gea are going to be mainstays for Spain.
