[Against the Netherlands] we made some mistakes and were punished. We had our game plan [against Spain] just like in the tournament in general, which was to defend well and look to counterattack at pace. Spain were a much better team individually and deserved to win. It's always a shame to lose but it depends how you lose – the way we lost [against Portugal] means we don't need to let our heads drop. We have plenty to work on and this gives us the motivation to do that. The biggest plus of this tournament for us is the fantastic support of the fans. Even when we lost and conceded four goals [against Portugal], the fans cheered us; it will give the players the inspiration to continue their careers with the clubs and the national teams.
