Pablo Sarabia notches 2 goals in 11 minutes as they continue to pad their lead vs. Iceland. (1:38)

Alvaro Morata scored a first-half double and substitute Pablo Sarabia added two more after the break as World Cup contenders Spain overwhelmed Iceland 5-0 in an international friendly on Tuesday.

Juventus striker Morata was the only player carried over in the starting lineup from Saturday's 2-1 friendly win over Albania in Barcelona, with coach Luis Enrique rotating his squad.

Morata opened the scoring in the 36th minute, after Valencia defender Hugo Guillamon had fed the ball through, with a right-footed shot into the bottom left corner.

He made it 2-0 from the penalty spot three minutes later after Dani Olmo was fouled by Birkir Bjarnason in the area, with Spain dominating the first half but also squandering opportunities.

Yeremy Pino added a third in the 47th minute from close range, with Morata coming off nine minutes later

Sarabia then headed in a fourth in the 61st minute, moments after he had come on, and made it 5-0 in the 72nd minute.

The match continued Spain's build-up to the Nations League and World Cup in Qatar in November and December, a tournament Iceland have failed to qualify for.

It was the first time the national side had played in the northwest city's Riazor stadium since 2009, when they beat Belgium 5-0 in a qualifier for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa that Spain went on to win.
