Fernando Torres: Spain are "a lot better" than four years ago

AS AS 16/06/2014 As.com

Striker Fernando Torres has told FIFA.com that Spain’s current generation is far from finished – and has insisted that La Roja are stronger now than when they won the World Cup at South Africa 2010.

"We are the same as we were a week ago, or four years ago," the 30-year-old Chelsea man said. "The team has matured with age. There is nothing to say that the team is worse, I would say it is a lot better.”

Morale: "Psychologically we are prepared. This group has gone through very good and very bad moments together. We know what we are capable of and I don't think the psychological factor will be a problem."

System: "There is no reason to change our system. In South Africa we lost the first game and we kept doing the same and were champions. We have to think that this team still has a lot of football ahead of it to achieve things once more. There will be a lot of people that believe in this team, that we have seen lift us up in similar situations and that will be with us. Now more than ever we need to be together as a group and it is us that need to fix this situation.”

Recovery: "Unfortunately we have already gone through this situation, albeit not quite as hard in South Africa. We need to forget the Netherlands game and getting to the next round depends on beating Chile. We need to win all the games from now until the end."

Pointing the finger: "The fault was of the group, not one player. It is the group that has made us champions of the world and Europe and it is the group that will win or lose in Brazil. You cannot point the finger at one player, it makes no sense. We need to find solutions because Chile play with a similar system to the Netherlands."
