Spain - No Victory in The Opener Is Not Equal Failure
Considering the exposure of unconventional 4-3-3 or 4-6-0 lineups, people are extremely interested about them. And soon after Spain drew the match with Italy by 1: 1, criticism was absolutely exceeding praise now which gave the unprecedented pressure on matadors.
To such a squad who had ever won the championships of World Cup and Euro Cup in last for years, the expectations from outside are too high.
Coach Vicente Del Bosque had anticipated the difficulties they might confronted, so a draw could be reluctantly accepted by Spain. Actually, Spain lost to Switzerland in the first match in World Cup 2010, so compared with the draw in Euro 2012 opening, their performance can be accepted. Spain matadors belong to Slow-burning category. Just as the football players of two squads said that a draw was the fairest result and the most proper reflection of this match.
There are many reasons why Spain hadn't won this match and the key point we could not deny is that their opponent did a good job indeed, especially in defense.
Besides, many key players blamed the sod of stadium. Francesc Fabregas Soler, AndrÃ©s Iniesta, Xavier and Pepe Reina all complained the sod was too dry which influenced their passing skill and cooperation. Indeed, Spain attach much importance on ground passing, so they require demanding sod. But this is not the most direct reason, maybe only Spain players know how much the sod influenced them.
Now it is high time for Spain to raise their morale and find key problems. As such a good team that gained so many champions, it is harder for them to confront the difficulties and weaknesses than other teams. Give them some time. And they will not let us down.
Do remember, Euro just begins.
