Del Bosque Stays On

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque committed his future to the world champions after they qualified for Brazil 2014 last night.

Goals from Alvaro Negredo and Juan Mata gave La Furia Roja the win they needed over Georgia to reach Brazil, where they will defend the World Cup title Del Bosque led them to in 2010.

In the build-up to the game, 62-year-old Del Bosque refused to discuss the speculation that he had earmarked a specific time to retire.

His contract expires at the end of the next World Cup, but flush with last night’s morale boosting victory, he now says he would like to stay on for as long as Spanish football wants him at the helm of their national team.

"I will renew as long as the Federation want me," the World Cup and European Championship winning former Real Madrid boss said.

"It will be time to discuss the matter soon.”

"It was very important we won tonight and I am pleased that we did exactly that,” he added.

“We have to be happy. Georgia were hard opponents, but so were [Spain’s other qualifying group opponents] Finland and France.

“I think we accomplished all of the goals we set ourselves at the start of this qualification."
