The Manchester City forward was clinical for La Roja to ensure they leapfrogged their opponents in Group A4 to qualify for the finals, whileAlvaro Morata, Rodri and Mikel Oyarzabal also got in on the action.
Although Spain were favourites to win the match and the price of 13/10 (2.30) with bet365 would have been popular, it is unlikely that many punters would have backed the incredible 250/1 (251.0) quote on a 6-0 home victory.
Needing to win to top the group, Luis Enrique’s side were imperious as they pummelled Germany into submission with 23 shots, 10 on target, and 70 per cent possession.
It was like watching Spain during their dominant days of winning back-to-back European Championships and a World Cup as they systematically picked apart their opponents, barely giving Joachim Low’s side a sniff.
Torres’s third was arguably the pick of the goals as he swept home from 18 yards out following good work from Morata and Fabian Ruiz on a smooth counter-attack, putting the game beyond Germany.
The result means Spain qualified for the Nations League finals for the first time after missing out in the last edition, and bet365 make them 11/4 (3.75) to lift the trophy next October.
World champions France remain 5/2 (3.50) favourites after securing their place in the finals with a 1-0 win in Portugal before rounding out their group campaign with a 4-2 win over Sweden on Tuesday night.
France are also joint-favourites to win Euro 2020 next summer with bet365 going 11/2 (6.50) that they lift the trophy for the first time since 2000, with Belgium and England available at the same price.
