Quotes

"We rounded off our campaign in the best possible way, the players did great. They put us under the cosh in the opening minutes but we recovered and then took control. We were the better team. There are a lot of players in this group who can play a part in the future, there’s no need to go ruling anyone out," Vicente del Bosque, Spain coach.
