Vicente del Bosque, Spain coachWe don’t have any excuses. We didn’t meet the standards expected of us, though I would like to say that the team showed character. We pushed forward but we didn’t have any luck. Now is not the time to think about the team’s future or mine. There’ll be plenty of time for that, but not right now.

Jorge Sampaoli, Chile coachI’m very happy with the effort the players put in. We worked very hard on how we might beat Spain and we managed it, but now we have to face the Netherlands. It’s an important match that will decide who wins the group. The idea is not to look any further ahead than the next game and to take things step by step.
