Spain won the game against Germany 1-0, after a header from Carles Puyol in the 73rd minute.
“It’s a big disappointment for us. We could have won but we didn’t, but this is football,” he told the press after the game.
“Now we are in the third place play-off, but we would have preferred to be in the final.”
“We had little courage and little chances, we attacked more in other games, but we have to look forward now,” he added.
“Spain left us little spaces, and had lots of chances, they deservedly beat us. I wish them the best for the final.”
Spain are set to face the Netherlands in the World Cup final on Sunday.
