It’s been over 7 months since Spain was eliminated from the 2014 World Cup as the Spanish squad experienced a disappointing campaign in the international tournament where they lost against Netherlands and Chile.
During the group stages, Spain sealed 3 points but it wasn’t enough for them to progress to the knockout stages.
It was a tournament to forget for Spain as the team is filled with world class players but they failed on making it count as Vicente del Bosque and his men were one of the first teams on being eliminated from the previous edition of the worldwide competition.
Even with this surprising elimination from the 2014 World Cup, Vicente del Bosque is feeling positive about the future of the Spanish squad.
“We had a necessary period of reflection after the World Cup and both we and the federation remain on the same page. We decided to carry on and I am feeling in good spirits and full of desire to fulfill my responsibilities. Our objective is clear: qualifying for the European Championship in 2016.” Del Bosque said on the national team’s website a few days ago.
When the 2014 World Cup reached its end, there were a number of coaches from different nations that decided to step down and resign from their managerial position due to the way that their squad was eliminated from the international competition and this is the case of Italy which was CesarePrandelli resigning and Brazil which had Luis Felipe Scolari in charge of the team but he left his position in the team after his team lost against Germany with a surprising scoreboard of 7-1.
However, even though Spain could never even manage to make it past the group stages, Vicente del Bosque decided to remain in charge as he has high hopes for his team.
