Vicente Del Bosque is not aiming too high and will settle for a semifinal finish in the upcoming Euro 2016.
Spain are current holders of the cup, after claiming the trophy back-to-back in 2008 and 2012, against Germany and Italy respectively.
And after stating his squad is not perfect, the manager stated a last-four finish will be acceptable.
Speaking on El partido de las 12 via network COPE, Del Bosque said: “If we make the semi-finals I would be happy, I’m telling you the truth.
“Even though some would consider not winning it a failure.
“What I do not want is for us to get nervous and despair to creep in.
“Unrest is a bad counsellor.”
On his squad, Del Bosque added: “In these past eight years we have taken many lists and they have not really been disputed.
“This one, maybe, has been the most talked about. We have tried to take the best list possible, for the good of the team.
“We have not given anyone any awards, we just want to take the best we could.”
