Spain goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas was at a loss for words following his side’s exit from the 2014 World Cup.
The 2010 World Champions’ exit from the tournament was confirmed when they lost their second game in Group B after going down 2-0 to Chile on Wednesday, which was preceded by a 5-1 beating from Netherlands in their first game.
The loss means Spain cannot qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament as they sit on the bottom of Group B with zero points and the worst goal difference.
It has not been a good tournament for Casillas who has conceded seven goals in two games while between the posts for Spain.
The Spanish goalkeeper has largely been criticised by sport pundits and has been at fault for some of his side’s goals in both games.
Speaking after his side’s loss to Chile on Wednesday, Casillas was lost for words, but did manage to apologise for his mistakes.
“It is hard to explain what happened,” said Casillas.
“I ask for forgiveness.
“We did our best and did not want to disappoint people.
“There is no option but to look into the future, think about the next game and do our best.
“Holland and Chile were better than Spain.”
Spain will play Australia in their final Group B game. The Socceroos have also lost their two games in the tournament thus far going down 3-1 to Chile and 3-2 to Netherlands.
