"We were dominant throughout the match, except at set pieces, where we struggled a little more than we should have, with Suarez’s goal being a good example. Things got a bit hurried towards the end, as we tried to hold on to the result, but we actually deserved to be ahead by more,"  Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach.
