Soldado Wants Spain v Brazil Final

Spain striker Roberto Soldado is hoping that they will go on to face Brazil in the final of the Confederations Cup.

Soldado started in Spain's opening game against Uruguay and scored in their 2-1 win, while David Villa and Fernando Torres were given a run in their 10-0 win over minnows Tahiti.

Victory over Nigeria in their final group game will ensure that they finish top and face the second-placed side of Group A in the semi-finals.

"A cool thing would be facing Brazil in the final," he told Marca.

"I think we all dream of experiencing that moment on the Maracana pitch when you are a child.

"We have not done anything yet in this tournament. We have to work hard to work hard to reach the final."

The Valencia man also admitted that he does not think that coach Vicente del Bosque will settle on a first choice striker just yet.

"The debate is difficult to forget. I'm sure that we'll return to playing as a false No.9 because it has worked," he continued.

"Last year I had the misfortune of staying at home. Now I've have the chance to experience the national team from within, to start in the first game and enjoy it.

"I'm calm and eager to continue doing well. I always want to show what I've got in me. It's what I do at Valencia and what I try to do with the national team. I hope more goals will come."
