Spain boss Del Bosque: We are now ready for World Cup

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says they're ready for their World Cup defence after victory over El Salvador.

Del Bosque was pleased Atletico Madrid pair Diego Costa and Juanfran were able to get through the 2-0 win unscathed.

"Juanfran played the entire 90 minutes and held up, Diego Costa played for 70 and he could've gone more but we decided to take him out," said Del Bosque.

"With these 23 players, we're going to Brazil.

"We lacked continuity and accuracy in the final third, but we dictated the match.

"We feel good and we're optimistic about the start of the competition. We didn't have many chances on goal but they were good and defended very well.

"But I'm not bothered by the way they played because if we take the initiative, I'm sure that in the majority of the games we'll have room to pass."
