Soldado Not Sure Of Regular Spot

Spain striker Roberto Soldado does not know if he will become a regular starter in the team despite a strong display in their 2-1 in over Uruguay on Sunday.

The Valencia forward struck Spain's second goal in a dominant performance against the South Americans, but admitted that it was up to coach Vicente del Bosque to decide if he keeps his place.

“I do not know if I'll ever be a starter, that is decided by the coach,” said Soldado.”I do not know if I'll hold the place again, that's a coach's decision.”

Regarding the performance as a whole, the 28-year-old believes that they should have taken more of their chances.

“The penalty was that we had chances, but the goals did not come,” he said. “We're happy because we've faced a very tough opponent and we have won. You cannot ease off for a second, despite a 2-0 lead," hje added.

“The team's philosophy is not lost. We haven't lost to a great team like Uruguay. We had the ball, we moved with skill and created chances.”

Spain will now take on Tahiti in their next match before squaring off with African champions Nigeria.
