Spain boss Del Bosque coming to terms with 'unthinkable' draw against Finland

Vincente del Bosque was lost for words after his Spain side played out a grim 1-1 draw with Finland last night.

The reigning World and European champions are second in World Cup qualifying Group I as a result, and trail leaders France by two points.

With games running out, the pair meet in Saint-Denis on Tuesday and a France win would not only end Spain's 19-game unbeaten run, but push them closer to having to go to a play-off.

With all that in mind, Del Bosque was not happy with a point against the minnows, with Sergio Ramos' early goal on his 100th appearance cancelled out by Teemu Pukki.

"We failed to finish off the game with the second goal," said Del Bosque in his post-match media conference.

"Finland defended well and then the unthinkable happened and they scored a goal.

"We could have been more clinical in front of goal but to not have won is too big a punishment."

The trip to France looks even harder considering David Silva (banned) and Jordi Alba (injury) are out, but Del Bosque is retaining hope.

"We rely on ourselves and have a great team," he said.
