The Spanish national team relived the 2010 World Cup and some of the stars detailed how they experienced it, amongst them Sergio Ramos, Sergio Busquets and Jesús Navas.
‘Amazon Prime’ are preparing a documentary about the World Cup which Spain won in South Africa in 2010. The current integrants of the national team had the pleasure of watching it in preview and expressed their feelings about it. ‘Sport’ collected some of the words.
“It is very emotional and rewarding to experience it again. I hope it will happen again. Dreaming is free and within the reach of very few. After so many years, now it is an honour to captain a team with young people and with a lot of hunger and illusion”, Sergio Ramos acknowledged.
“I see that excitement that I saw at that moment that I was young. If we believe in it, we can achieve it. It’s a question of working, having confidence in ourselves and getting the best out of ourselves”, the CB assured.
For Ramos, the then manager in 2010, Vicente del Bosque, did a great job in shaping the group: “He was very important because he unified or we were out of what was the core of the team. We had just killed each other in both Barcelona and Madrid and those discrepancies were secondary. We came together and said that if we were together and went hand in hand, we could make it. The key to success was union”.
The captain also had time to speak about that ‘final’ that Spain has against Germany: “We play at home and depend on us.
It is a unique opportunity, to play a ‘final four’. We have to be convinced. If we continue with the same intensity, attitude and desire, anything is possible. If we all play our part, the Germans are going to struggle”.
Busquets and Navas also spoke about the 2010 World Cup. The Barcelona midfielder catalogued that time as “unique” and that “it can be repeated in the not too distant future”.
The Sevilla full-back, for his part, will never forget what was achieved in South Africa: “They were unique moments. I hope we can repeat them. The excitement that each of us has for doing something great with Spain is incredible”.
