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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
