"It looks promising for Jesús Navas and Diego Costa"

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque spoke at a press conference in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium. The current world champions will get down to business on Friday as they face Bolivia in a World Cup warm-up match and Del Bosque has no doubts that the coming days are key to his squad going into the tournament in the best possible shape.

Aim of the friendly: “As you all know, we’ve trained for three days. It’s necessary to play a game beyond our rivals, which may or may not be similar. To complete the first week it’s necessary to take two days’ rest and then join up on the second day to cover that week.”

Deulofeu: “We’ve brought Deulofeu in because he deserves it. He’s young and you have to bring him closer to the national team. And also because of his characteristics. We believe in him and he’s an option if there are any serious injuries. He’s a unique player, and there are very few with the same style; that’s why we’ve brought him in. It’s not unusual. We’ve done something similar before, for example with Montoya. And we never want to interrupt their growth.”

The XI versus Bolivia: “Of the 19 with us, 17 will play. No-one has to prove anything. Those that are here deserve to be as much as anyone else. They’ve earned the chance to be here.”

Navas and Diego Costa: “It looks promising. On Friday they will have a scan. If it’s good, we will make a decision on Saturday morning.”

Protests: “We hope it will be a normal World Cup, and will go in this direction. There are always negative things before World Cups but the tournament will turn out well.”

The “look” of the players: “I said something that was a reality. We all look differently. But the players have the best intentions, as I’ve already explained. They showed it against Italy. I’m not even the same as I was six years ago. I try not to change but sometimes there are shocks and confusion. I didn’t want to devalue the players in any way, but well, someone will have to get something from it somewhere.”

Fatigue and fitness: “We haven’t noticed at this stage of the season. They’ve played a lot of games, and it’s been an intense season. Some have won, and others haven’t. It’s draining. We ask for effort over fifty days or so, but we’ve found them in good shape. What we want, apart from holding generic training sessions, is for them to be in the best possible condition.”

Players and their futures: “The players know what they have in front of them. Then they have to control their lives. We’ve played five tournaments in recent years. There are players that have come for six summers and their behaviour has been fantastic.The proof is in the last tournaments.”
