''WE ARE NOT SCARED OF NETHERLAND'' SPAIN COACH, DEL BOSQUE BOAST
Spain coach, Vicente Del Bosque insist that his side are not scared of Netherlands, their first opponents in the World Cup.
The 2010 world cup winners and runners respectively will play against each other in their Group B opener which will be a replay of the finals four years ago when Andres Iniesta settled deep into extra-time to secure a first ever world crown for his country.
The 63-year-old admits that his side have to respect the South Africa 2010 runners up, but insists they are not scared of Louis van Gaal's charges as he feels there is great unity in his team.
"We don’t fear the Netherlands," he said after Saturday's win over El Salvador. "We respect the rightful runners-up of the World Cup.
"All teams have problems but we function as a team more than individual players and that makes it easier to find solutions when we have injuries."
