Spain’s coach, Del Bosque admits that the Super Eagles were a though opponent

Vicente del Bosque, Spain press conference

Vicente del Bosque has admitted he was a relieved man, after he watched his side defeat Nigeria 3-0 in their last group game at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

Jordi Alba scored either side of a Fernando Torres header, to give La Roja the win, amidst a host of missed chances by the Super Eagles.

 “It was a tough match,” Del Bosque said after the game. “We had a great opponent and they managed to create a balance in possession, looking for victory. We had control, patience and I think this was an unfair result as both teams should have scored more.
