“Sometimes things just don’t turn out for you and that is what happened to us right from the first minute. They got an early goal then withdrew. We must congratulate Brazil because they showed that they know how to play against Spain. We have gained a lot of important achievements & one day the moment has to arrive when you don’t win. We aren’t robots. Our conscience is clear because we gave the best we had”.
- Sergio Ramos, after the Confederations Final against Brazil | 30-06-13
