Furman: A Dream Come True

Dean Furman told the Doncaster Rovers' website that playing against Spain was one of his career highlights, on his return to England, after playing as Bafana Bafana beat the World Champions 1-0 on November 19.

Furman said it was a dream come true to play against some of the Spanish giants, but was proud of how his team played, and that their tactic had worked perfectly.

When asked by the Rovers website how it felt it to beat Spain, Furman said, "I must admit I am still scratching my head how we did it. To be honest we played great on the night by following a game plan.

"We sat back and let the Spanish have the ball when in their half and when they came in ours, we pressed them and hit them on the counter attack. We have some terrific players when going forward and we knew we could cause them problems, which it did.

“I started the game by playing against Iniesta, Busquets and Alonso in midfield, which after 70 minutes changed to Matta, Villa and Koke from Atletico Madrid.

"These are all amazing players and it did not get easier all night. It was a great spectacle and the game was played in good spirits throughout. It was terrific we came out with a win.

“When you play against top players like this you have to raise your game from the first whistle because these guys are so clever on and off the ball. They are so quick and amazing off the ball.

"If you switch off for just a minute they are away and can hurt you. We worked and were switched on for 96 minutes working as a team and for each other, which was vital.

"This game will be one of the highlights of my career and will live with me for a long time.

“It was a dream come true to play against them and be in the starting line up against these sort of players."
