The reigning world and two-time European champions were humbled 3-0 by Brazil at the weekend in the Rio de Janeiro final to end their 29-match unbeaten run in competitive internationals.

Spain will therefore be back in South America next summer to defend their World Cup title and they will have a score to settle.

"You can't win every time," said Spain and Chelsea striker Torres. "That said, in one year's time, we will be back here as world champions to defend what's ours.

"Next year we're coming over here to make it four [World Cups and European Championships]."

But Torres does not think Spain will be purely looking to set the record straight against Brazil if they again meet the World Cup hosts.

"Football is great for that, because you always get another chance," he said when asked about a possible revenge mission.

"One year from now, hopefully we'll be here and have a chance to make up for today [Sunday], not necessarily to gain revenge on Brazil, but for our own sake."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
