Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says he has no excuses for his side that exited the 2014 FIFA World Cup after a 2-0 loss to Chile in a Group B match on Wednesday.
The result means Spain cannot qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament after two losses in Group B, going down 5-1 to Netherlands and then losing to Chile.
Del Bosque admits his side were the weaker team on the day and deserved to lose, but they will not keep their heads down and will look to a positive future.
“We have no excuses,” said Del Bosque.
“We were too slow and timid from the start today.
“It's a sad day for all of the players and time to think about the future.
“We played two games, and were not able to be better than Holland or Chile, so we are out of the World Cup.
“We thought we had very good chance, good players. But the reality is different.”
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.
