Del Bosque calls for end to Spanish jeers

Jun 23 2013, 3:06am CDT | by

Fortaleza (Brazil), June 23 (IANS) Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has urged Brazilian fans to support his team during La Roja's final Confederations Cup Group B match against Nigeria here Sunday.

Fortaleza (Brazil), June 23 — Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has urged Brazilian fans to support his team during La Roja's final Confederations Cup Group B match against Nigeria here Sunday.

Spain drew a lukewarm reception from fans during their 2-1 victory over Uruguay in Recife before being booed in last Thursday's 10-0 win over Tahiti in Rio de Janeiro, reports Xinhua.

"I wouldn't say the crowd wasn't against Spain at the Maracana. They were on the side of Tahiti, for obvious reasons," Del Bosque said on the eve of Sunday's match at the Castelao Stadium.

"But supporters are also capable of recognising when the best football is being played. I hope that we can do that tomorrow and that the crowd will be on our side."

Spain only needs a draw against Nigeria to guarantee a top spot finish in their group in the World Cup warm-up tournament.

Jesus Navas Faces Battle to Establish Himself in Manchester City Starting XI

Jul 18 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jesus Navas’ first season at Manchester City can almost certainly be considered a success. He offered out-and-out width after a season defined by City’s inability to switch from their narrow formation when things weren’t going according to plan. He added pace to a forward line that badly needed it, and he scored the third goal in the League Cup final win over Sunderland at Wembley, ending Manuel Pellegrini’s trophy drought as a European manager sh ...

Gerard Deulofeu may very well be the most hyped player to come out of La Masia since Lionel Messi.

After a successful loan spell at Everton last season, Deulofeu will be part of the Barcelona first team squad and all signs point to new manager Luis Enrique looking to use the young winger in a big way. Deulofeu possesses a lot of raw potential, but ...

World Cup Daily Digest: Spain Abdicate the Throne, Chile & Netherlands March on

Jun 18 2014 7:12pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Spanish daily Marca said it best, and certainly said it most succinctly. Its front-page headline simply read, "The End." After three successive international tournament victories, 2010 World Cup winners Spain became the first side to be knocked out out of this year's competition, following their abject 2-0 defeat to Chile (well, Australia were knocked out at the same time—but let's not let the facts get in the way of a good tale).
