Vicente del Bosque, Spain's NT coach, dropped by the offices of El Confidencial recently, and addressed many topics, including the alleged rumours of Spain partying in Argentina a day before their friendly. This is what he said:
- on the supposed juerga in Argentina: "the players are completely responsible people. They had spent five days in the training camp. I remember when I was playing on the national team, you had to spend days and days inside the hotel. I try to avoid these situations. The players didn’t do anything that they hadn’t done before, in the World Cup or the Eurocopa. Two days before the game, we had a dinner and whoever wanted to go out afterward went out for a bit. That’s it, nothing more. The behavior of these players is exemplar."

in my opinion, he's right, they had the right of going out and enjoying themselves after so much training, besides it was just a friendly.
AND WHERE ARE THE PICTURES. THERE MUST BE PICTURES.
