"We will play with three strikers" - Spain coach Vicente del Bosque

June 30, 2012 By Gregory Sica
The accomplished tactician affirmed that he will utilise three forwards for Sunday's Euro 2012 final against Italy.
Vicente del Bosque announced that Spain will enter Sunday's Euro 2012 final against Italy with three men up front, in order to add an extra dimension to their often misfiring attack.

Spain, who were kept at bay through 120 minutes by Portugal before securing passage into the final of the competition following a triumphant penalty shoot-out, clearly lack a consistent striker, and will be hoping to solve their offensive problems by deploying three forwards.

"We will play with three strikers, but the entire team have to help them," Del Bosque stated to reporters during a pre-game press conference.

"These three players will have the obligation to attack and to try to score a goal. We have more obligation to attack than to defend."

While it may seem that the coach has opted for the strategy to counter Italy's strong defence, Del Bosque denied claims that Italy will employ highly-defensive tactics in an attempt to stop his side.

"Italy have been on the rise and they deserve to be in the final. We cannot say that Italy played defensive soccer against us in the group game because they did not. They have made progress in recent years," affirmed the 61-year-old.

Despite the fact that Spain enter Sunday's contest as the overwhelming favourites, after having won Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup, Del Bosque believes the final will be evenly-matched, and that both sides have equal chances of triumphing.

"I think we can't look at the past. Italy have won the World Cup four times, and we are talking about the present, which is the only reference," he stated.

"We were in the same group, we have both won matches on penalties and our playing style has been similar. That is why I do not think there will be a big difference."
