Spain beats Australia but uncertainty remains for the team’s future

DESPITE a crushingly swift elimination from the World Cup, Spain swept the floor with a 3-0 win over Australia in their final match Monday.

The victory did little for encouraging celebration, though, as Spain coach Vicente del Bosque witnessed his team lose to Holland 5-1 and Chile 2-0 to end up third in their group.

Because of Spain’s poor performance in Brazil, retirement rumours loom for both Del Bosque and midfielder Xabi Alonso.

The international football superstar Alonso – who’s won two European Championships and a World Cup with Spain over his 11-year career – claims he has not made any final decisions on whether he will continue playing.

However, according to reports from the Daily Mail, he was heard expressing his opinion that the ‘old era’ of Spain’s dominance in international football might be over.
