Spain will be back to win World Cup, says Fernando Torres

Spain did not need the loss as a wake-up call or to motivate the players, he said, but the match served as a reminder of how hard it will be to beat Brazil on their own soil next year, Torres said. Spain have won an unprecedented three major tournaments in a row with two European titles and the World Cup, he added.

Madrid: Spain will be back next year to win the World Cup after falling into "disarray" as they were vanquished 3-0 by Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, striker Fernando Torres says.

"You can't win every time," the 29-year-old Chelsea forward and Spain international said in a post-match interview published Monday on FIFA's web site.

Torres described the defeat as a "blip against a team that played better than us" and said the loss would not change Spain's approach in the future.
