The Vine video above is proof that nothing went right for Vicente Del Bosque at the Maracana last night.
Spain’s coach, a previous winner of both the World Cup in 2010 and the 2012 European Championships, had just watched his side bow out of defending their crown.
Del Bosque was, as ever, calm and reflective in light of the 2-0 defeat to Chile: “The intention was there but we were missing something. Against Chile, we were timid in the first half. We changed after the break but couldn’t change the result. The players tried right up until the end.”
The Spain boss added: “Everyone made a huge effort. We are sorry we weren’t able to reach the heights [expected] by all who sent us good wishes. There will be time to think about the future. We must have time before beginning to reflect, however.”
Latest reports from Spain suggest that Del Bosque will meet with Spanish Football Federation President Angel Villar in the coming days to discuss the future of La Furia Roja.
Del Bosque is expected to stay on as Spain coach with a new technical director to be appointed in the coming months.
