How The Mighty Have Fallen!

Successive defeats to Netherlands and Chile put an end to Spain's dream of defending their World Cup title.

Are the legs gone, or is it a case of complacency? Those are questions lingering in the minds of the Spaniards.

Crowned world champions in 2010... fast forward four years later and La Roja is eliminated in the first round of the World Cup.

As the adage goes, ‘all good things come to an end.’ It certainly holds true if Spain's current situation is anything to go by.

The team renowned for the ‘tiki-taka’ style of play have been dominant in recent years by clinching the 2008 and 2012 UEFA Euro Cups, as well as the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, Spain has looked a shadow of their former selves in this year's World Cup tournament.

The golden generation of Spanish football seems to be waning, but they have left an indelible mark in the minds of football followers with their scintillating displays.

Let’s hope they show their quality and bounce back...
