Del Bosque: Spain deserved to go out

2014 FIFA World Cup Group B: Spain 0-2 Chile

Vicente del Bosque says Spain deserved to crash out of the World Cup after their 2-0 Group B defeat to Chile on Wednesday.

- Marcotti: One dynasty ends, another ready
- Alvarez: Del Bosque's misplaced loyalty
- Delaney: Three points as Chile send Spain out
- Vickery: Fearless Chile close out Spain's generation
- Five Aside: Was Spain the best dynasty?
- Chile stars dreaming of World Cup glory
- Fans break into Maracana

Following their 5-1 loss to Netherlands last week, La Roja needed at least a point to keep alive their hopes of advancing to the knockout stages of the competition.

However, Chile outperformed their opponents on the night, and goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz were enough to secure them all three points.

The result means Spain are the first World Cup holders -- having won in 2010 -- to be eliminated in the following edition after just their second game.

"We deserved to go out. But the team showed character today, kept going and were a bit unlucky with the goals," Del Bosque told a news conference.

"We all tried, but we were not as good as both teams we played."

Del Bosque added: "We played two games and were not able to be better than Netherlands or Chile, so we are out of the World Cup. It hurts, but in today's game we were a bit timid. We had a bit more play in second half, but not enough to even up the score.

"We thought we had a very good chance, good players. But the reality was different. The second half against Netherlands and the first half today was low in every way.

"Chile made it very uncomfortable for us in first half. They sat back a bit more in the second. That was why game was different. Chile were as we expected -- their attitude and the tremendous physicality they have."

The way in which Spain were knocked out of the tournament has led many to suggest this is the end of an era for the team.

Del Bosque, though, does not want to rush to such conclusions just yet.

"This not the moment to weigh up retirements -- bit-by-bit decisions can be made," he said. 

"When something negative happens in the World Cup there are consequences. But there is lot of time to think about what's best for Spanish football. These players have given a lot.

"During the 25 days we've been together, how they have worked, their spirit, I would not have believed this would happen.

"In these days we have had since the Netherlands game, we have had many positive messages from fans. Today is a sad day for those who have enjoyed all the successes of this team. And for us who have suffered it personally."

Spain captain Iker Casillas came under fire for his performance in goal against Netherlands and many were expecting him to be dropped for Wednesday's clash.

Casillas, however, kept his place, only to produce another disappointing display that saw him at fault for Chile's second goal.

"Its difficult to explain what happened," he said. "Sorry to the fans. We are those responsible. It is not the day to start blaming or changing."

When asked if this could be his last game for his country, the goalkeeper replied: "I don't know, I really don't know."
