Chelsea ace Mata desperate for gold glory

Chelsea ace Juan Mata wants to win gold with Spain to cap off a glorious season.

The playmaker has already won Champions League and FA Cup medals with Chelsea and a Euro 2012 gong with Spain.

Mata, 24, said: "It seems we must win the gold without even playing first.

"That's not the case. There are other very strong teams, who have squads that can challenge. We must be isolated from expectations about winning."
