Del Bosque: Haiti test ‘worth it’

Spain Coach Vicente Del Bosque said the 2-1 win over Haiti in Miami was ‘worth it’ as preparation for the Confederations Cup in Brazil.

“These friendlies are clearly worth it as it allows us to train and compete. Ultimately it is about the preparation of the team and we moved forward today.

“Even so, it was obvious this game was not a final and we still have one more test before June 16 [when the tournament in Brazil starts]”, he told a Press conference.

Regarding his attacking options, the 62-year-old said he had still not decided on Fernando Torres or Roberto Soldado as his main striker.

“Roberto had several chances and Fernando was very active. We have still not made up our minds. For the strikers it was a test, not the final examination,” said Del Bosque, before analysing the 90 minutes.

“[Goalkeeper] Iker Casillas had virtually nothing to do and it’s true that it cost us when we played with more depth in the second half. They played with a lot of joy and transmitted this to the spectators. No wonder they vibrate with their performances.

“In the first half it was hotter yet we played better. Then we got carried away at 2-0 and stopped playing a little.

“However, they are good team and are at No 59 in the FIFA rankings,” he concluded.
