Well not until the Euro 2020
Where are the Spain fans?
Watching Morata alongside players like Pedro, Iniesta and even Nolito, he appears to be a giant!
Which striker is best for Spain atm? You have the likes of Costa, Morata, Alcacer, Pedro and Adruiz in contention.

Not many bar Pedro have much experience with Spain, and Pedro isn't really a striker and hasn't done all to much with Spain, despite being with the team during their golden era.

I'd say one of Morata or Costa, one based on big game performance [Morata], the other on pure form and intimidation factor [Costa]. Thoughts? VDB prefers the latter atm.

Another selection headace that VDB is facing (although to level headed Spanish fans, the answer is fairly simple) is who to start between DDG and Iker.
IIIIIIIISCO IIIIIIIIISCO IIIIIIIIIIISCO
so Spain left with zero fans now? :) how sad...
Astonishing! Not one comment since 2 months ago...
12,808 minus 1 (me) :p

a stark contrast to Italy's 4730 fans, while Italy page still alive & kicking ass XD
Xavi retires from international football

It's the end of an era.

Spanish midfielder Xavi announced his retirement from international football on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old won 133 caps for La Roja, helping his country win the 2010 FIFA World Cup along with back-to-back European Championships.

"I've taken the decision to leave the national team. My time there has finished," he said in an official press release.

"From now on I'm another fan of the Spain team. I'm grateful to everybody at the Federation (RFEF), it's been a marvelous time for me to be there for so many years and have so much success. I'm leaving very proud and I wish them all the best."

The Barcelona star was named player of the tournament at EURO 2008, forming the nucleus of a daunting midfield alongside Andres Iniesta that would carry Spain to international domination in three consecutive tournaments.
ahh dang.. Its proven that David Villa has always has been The Man upfront for La Furia Roja

well...i guess its too late until u realized it, Mr Del Bosque
^ Cannot agree more. I'd play them strikers in the following order:

David Villa
Negredo/Llorente
Torres
Costa

The fact that Costa never played for Spain earlier and all the others did was enough proof that Del Bosque should had utilized the others. Ohh well.
+1
yes. And sure, ppl can debate that Costa having a better season than Villa(not by a large margin though)..but its the aspect of who can "work" with the team and who can't

Spain is nothing like Atletico

the one i can think of is Nicklas Bendtner. How average he is with any of his clubs, he would ALWAYS be Denmark 1st choice striker

the same can be said with David Villa. Comparing his national team experience and how he can 'click' with the current Spanish squad is a no-contest the 'newcomer' Diego Costa
Wouldn't it have been poetic if Torres's goal was the final goal of the Spain Australia game, after all it was his goal that began the Spanish reign, it would'v been fitting if his goal ended that Spanish reign.
The legendary old guard of Spain are done, not Spanish football. In the past three years, neither Barcelona nor Spain have played tiki-taka the way it should be played: with one touch passing, smart runs and energetic pressing. It was just pass, pass sideways some more, give it to a winger, cross and hope for the best. That's far from the amazing tiki-taka that won Barça and Spain all those trophies.

I wonder what's next now. The pressing game with fast counterattacks dominates now, what's the next step?
Spains future is still bright, just look at thiago alcantara, Isco, Jese... they'll bounce back
And the reason they havent managed to play it the way it should is because teams have figured it out how to play against it...
^Whenever Barca/Spain lose people say that others have figured out how to play against them. No matter how they played, whether it was defending deep and lobbing long passes behind the defense or high pressing game or being physical or... So suddenly several styles have become effective against tiki taka, as if these styles had never been tried against Spain/Barca before they got "figured out"??

For example, other teams have always defended very deep and conceded possession to tiki taka teams and attacked on the counter, but some years ago it didn't work as well as it does today.

The decline of Barca/Spain is mostly caused by these teams not playing as well as they used to, no matter how the other team plays.
A few years back Spain looked invincible, seemed to have found how to perfect football, Barca as well. But in the end Football moves on and all generations die eventually. The last real Tiki Taka esc performance you can say Spain really had was the first half of that Euro 2012 final where they destroyed Italy.

More youth, fresh ideas, new game-plan and slowly ridding themselves of the old guard is the next step. It was great entertainment watching Spain in their pomp and transforming from the greatest footballing nation to never win a World Cup to dominating World Football.

On a side note: they badly missed Puyol
They're not playing as well because teams have figured it out bro its not hard to understand lol...if teams went all out attack then barca would win...see the el classico
Spain during their Euro 2008 triumph, that was entertaining and magnificent side

Spain during the 2010 World Cup triumph...the most boring team ever to won the trophy
^ to be fair, that whole World Cup was boring
^couldn't agree more

yeah all u vuvuzela-blowing ppl...i blame u

XD
