Del Bosque targets final success


Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque has called on his players to carry on their good form and win Sunday's World Cup final.

After losing 1-0 to Switzerland in their first group game in South Africa, Spain went on to qualify for the last 16 by beating Honduras and Chile.

Since then they have edged past Portugal and Paraguay by a single goal before reaching the final with a 1-0 victory against Germany on Wednesday thanks to Carles Puyel's header.

Del Bosque is looking forward to Sunday's final against the Netherlands, saying:"All of our players were extraordinary – but we still have a match to play. We know Dutch football and it will be very tough in the final.

"From defence through to attack I think we played a great game.

"We've got another game in front of us, let's see if we are able to control the ball. We're in good shape physically, so let's see if we can win."
