Spain coach Vicente del Bosque plans to make a ton of changes before the game, The Mirror reported. And striker Fernando Torres, knows that everyone just has to calm down and get it back together again.
“As time passes and the days go by, you try to forget it as much as possible and look ahead to the Chile game, which is what’s up next,” he said. “The only similarity to four years ago is the need to win the three points, to not make mistakes, thinking that Holland [who play Australia earlier on Wednesday] are going to win their next game. We have to beat Chile, but now the atmosphere is different. This defeat was a lot harder to take [than the Switzerland one] so it wasn’t similar in that sense.”
However, they know that the expectations from their country are high and they’re under a ton of pressure not to let them down!
“It’s not necessary to tell this team what to do. As has been demonstrated in the past few years, we know how to get out of tight situations. The defeat hurt us more than anyone,” he added, saying that the emotions behind the game are definitely all over the place. “There’s a little bit of everything. There’ll be people that will have taken advantage of the situation to stick the boot in and others that feel prouder than ever of this group.”
