Spain's golden era not over: Del Bosque

Jul 1 2013, 2:44am CDT | by

Rio de Janeiro, July 1 (IANS) Spain coach Vicente del Bosque denies his team's golden era is over after the reigning World and European champions were crushed 0-3 by Brazil in the Confederations Cup final here.

Rio de Janeiro, July 1 — Spain coach Vicente del Bosque denies his team's golden era is over after the reigning World and European champions were crushed 0-3 by Brazil in the Confederations Cup final here.

Spain's heralded possession game was comprehensively picked apart by Luiz Felipe Scolari's side at the Maracana here Sunday, raising doubts about La Roja's ability to continue its dominance of world football, reports Xinhua.

But Del Bosque insisted the result was not cause for panic, stressing he still had utmost faith in his players.

"We are not happy with this result and we have to analyze it," Del Bosque said. "We can't let it just pass by. But we also have to accept that sometimes a team can be better than us on any given day.

"We have players of real quality and a style which has been defined over a long period of time. I don't think we should change that just because of one defeat."

The 62-year-old said his team was already eyeing its next World Cup qualifier against Finland September 6.

When asked if Brazil were now among the favorites to win the World Cup, Del Bosque was unequivocal.

"There's no doubt they are one of the favorites to win. They have a strong team. They had a good tournament and finished off today with a great result," he added.

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

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

Friendly - Bayern Munich v Manchester City
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 shortly afte ...

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

Spanish headcoach Vicente Del Bosque is
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). Following the surprisi ...
