Spain has the same problem that seems to have no solution from Coach Vicente Del Bosque, the inability to score goals. Plus the "Diego Costa option" is not working at all, a paradox as the player is scoring goals on a weekly basis with his Club Chelsea FC.
Spain started with the following 11 players:
Casillas; Juanfran, Albiol, Piqué, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Koke; Cesc, Silva, Iniesta; & Diego Costa.
As you can see all top class names on paper, but the opposition teams seem to have worked out the antidote to halt Spain by simply defending in block & frustrating the Spaniards until they make mistakes.
After Spanish keeper Iker Casillas made a brilliant one hand save early in the match, he was later confused by a swirling free-kick drive that found the net in the 17th min by Kucka. Could Casillas have done better? Maybe or maybe not, what is assured is that the local debate about his form & team place is back.
