Boring? No sir, not at all. On the contrary, Spain plays the most creative brand of football among European nations and have possibly played the most attacking of all teams in this year's World Cup. Their game is primarily possession-based and this has been their weakness as well as their strength in this competition. They barely lose possession of the ball, playing on the ground as opposed to sending long balls down the pitch, so much so that their strikers, full of talent and individual ball-play skills, often take too long to shoot, which has often translated to poor finishing in this tournament.

But if anything, this group has been playing clean, fair and magical futbol for a good few years now. What they need is a set-piece hero who can curve it in from free-kicks and find players with pin-point accuracy from corners. Wish Forlan was born in Spain. Not too worried about the finishing as, with Torres being out of form, this goal-drought might just have been a temporary thing.

Boring is what Italy, France and Germany pre-2006 are guilty of.
