Del Bosque delighted with Spain’s seventh win from seven


Vicente Del Bosque was in an upbeat mood after watching his Spain side maintain their perfect qualifying record with a 2-0 win over Czech Republic.

First half goals from Juan Mata on 6 and Xabi Alonso on 23 reflected an overly comfortable outing for the European Championship defending champions, and Del Bosque only had praise for his men.

“We played a good game, in which we achieved the goal to win against an uncomfortable opponent, and in the second half we have not left ourselves as open as before. The team had style and remains on the right line.

“We’ve done really well. Let’s see if we use all the players, we have a large group of players.”

The Coach was also lighter than expected on Tomas Hubschman’s 70th-minute dismissal for a dangerous challenge on Alonso, that forced the Real Madrid midfielder to be substituted.

“It was a kick at the wrong time, hard and unnecessary, it made no sense. The good news is that it was nothing more than an impact blow, it is nothing serious.”

Fernando Torres started the game ahead of David Villa, with Del Bosque taking questions again on the misfiring Chelsea man.

“It is with great desire that he plays, I have told him to have a little patience. We did not find the pass for him, but hey, we’re happy.”
