The response to this by teams is to use superior athletes, if they have them, to press the ball like Spain do. The Spanish still have their weaknesses without the ball, namely behind the ball defensive shape and organization. The Spanish are so nervous without the ball that they are eager to get it back, which when it doesn't work results in wild positioning and flimsy defensive shape.
While they've just won a U23 tournament, I think that there are alarming similarities between this loss and last year's dismal performance at the Olympics. It has been interesting to see how differently their U20 team is put together. I don't know if it's coincidental or if Spain has already been looking to change things up.
but I don't think they have the defensive depth to do this through a whole tournament.
Don't tell me that you wouldn't want to see Raul Albiol start in a World Cup final.
