Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach
Oscar Tabarez, Uruguay coach
Spain played much better than us and completely deserved their victory. They really imposed their game on us, especially in the first half. Our organisation was a bit lacking and we didn’t win the ball back enough. We tried to get more into the match in the second half, as we were playing for pride and didn’t want to be embarrassed; it was a tough situation. We did manage to make more of a game of it at that point, although we probably have to admit that our opposition had taken their foot off the pedal a little by then. We saved face and put in a decent effort, although at times we played well below our usual standards.
