Spain won the 2010 World Cup and have been on a dominant run in soccer ever since, but that all came to an end as they crashed and burned in the 2014 World Cup being eliminated after their first two games in group play.
There was some discussion that this might be the end of an era for the Spanish team and it certainly looks that way. Spain manager Vicente del Bosque is waiting till after Spain’s Final World Cup game against Australia before making a decision on his future and what to do.
“We are still competing, so I don’t think this is the moment to speak about my future, but I will do what is best for everyone,” Del Bosque said, via Sky Sports.
“I want to repeat that I don’t want to be a hindrance to the Spanish Football Federation. The good of Spanish football should become above all personalities.

“I want to try and act correctly with the Federation, which has always treated me well. If I am a problem for our football, I will go. The interests of the national team and the Federation will rank above my own interests when I make my decision.”
Del Bosque also added: “Everyone is to blame.”
Sergio Ramos and Santi Cazorla have backed their manager, and so has Jorge Perez, the Spanish Football Federation’s sporting director. It would appear that his future is in his hands.
