Torres struck four goals past the Tahiti, who are 138th in the FIFA rankins, as Spain sealed their spot in the next round of the Confederations Cup with their second win in two games. Despite the heavy defeat, much of the cheers in the Maracana were reserved for the Pacific Island national team which comprised of part-time footballers and Torres praised their attitude towards the game.
"What we take from this game is the example the Tahiti team, who played with 100 per cent passion and fair play until the end," said Torres.
"They try to play properly, they try to enjoy themselves. They don't try to stop the game or kick players - they enjoy their football and that is the big thing we take from the game today.
"We were taking pictures with their players after the game. They are happy people and I really enjoyed seeing them smiling and enjoying themselves until the last minute."
Torres insisted that Spain's merciless performance was down to their professionalism in taking the Confederations Cup seriously and was delighted to have scored four in the legendary Maracana.
Torres added: "It's more than a dream. No one can imagine scoring four goals in the Maracana in an official game in a great tournament.
"We focused like we were playing a final. We played with intensity and professionalism. We want to finish first in the group and we showed that with our professionalism."
