Tuesday provides a mouth watering friendly clash between two of the games biggest football nations- Argentina v Spain. Spain has dominated world football these past two years. La Furia Roja are not only European champions but also just recently added the biggest title of them all-the FIFA World Champions tag. One man has however been quick to instruct his side not to let their achievements get to their head.
Current coach Vicente Del Bosque has issued a warning to his side as they prepare to face Argentina in a friendly in Buenos Aires today. Del Bosque is undoubtedly one of the best coaches around and is mainly remembered for stint as Real Madrid boss.
The Spaniard was largely responsible for fashioning a dream team during the club’s galacticos era. Los Blancos went on to win a number of titles including two Champions League trophies and the La Liga title.
Now coach of Spain, Del Bosque is taking nothing lightly as he prepares his team to face the South American giants.
“The worst that can happen to this group is to believe that we are the kings of the world. After winning the World Cup, our goal is to prepare for the next tournament,”
“We’re just players and a coach except that we are the world champions. We have a great responsibility to move forward.
“I think our success is due to a solid base rather than a good generation. We have not changed at all since the World Cup. We won the World Cup from technical and human effort.”
Argentina on any day is not a team to be underestimated and even though they may be struggling to find that winning formula that won them two world cups, La Albicelestes go into the match as favourites.
