Spain coach Vicente del Bosque insists England's players ARE good enough.

Del Bosque reckons the players already have the ability to pass it around - something they failed to do in their quarter-final with Italy.

Del Bosque said: "There was a trend in the last World Cup marked by Spain, Holland and Germany of a game with more combinations.

"England could play it perfectly because they have very good players.

"I do not consider the English to be the fathers of football but certainly the fathers of European football."
