Italy coach Cesare Prandelli insists Spain will bounce back from their World Cup humiliation.
Prandelli said he is sure the Spaniards' demise will only be temporary.
"I won't go on about it, but I am sure that in two months they will again be one of the strongest teams in the world," Prandelli said.
"Maybe they have paid the price of a stressful season and the final of the Champions League."
