Del Bosque: I think about everyone, the players only think about themselves

In an interview with Spanish television station, Cuatro, Del Bosque first spoke about their final 2014 World Cup match against Australia on Monday and their desire to end the disappointing tournament on a high note.

“We want to say goodbye in the best possible way. I was gutted following the match against Holland but after these past few days, we now understand the situation, we all worked together and it’s become bearable.

“We had a footballing issue. I don’t want to make excuses about the schedule.

Del Bosque then spoke the future, stating that he has yet to make a decision and despite the support from the Royal Football Federation, the two parties will sit down to discuss the future.
