The draw is set to be made in Brazil for the tournament this weekend and del Bosque is wary of the coach.
“Brazil, beyond their coach, is a world power, and because of the players they have and their history, they are the team to beat,” said the Spain coach.
“What happened in South Africa left a bad taste and after our successes at World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012 this is a challenge for us. We will prepare to compete with the prestige of champions.
“We will go with our main players, as for us the Confederations Cup is a very important tournament.”
