England latest to beat world champions

[VIDEO PICK] Spain went 8-for-8 in Euro 2012 qualifying, but it suffered its fourth loss in nine friendlies since winning the 2010 World Cup when it fell to England, 1-0, at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. For highlights of the game ...

The English media gushed about Fabio Capello's masterplan to stop the Spaniards and Scott Parker's work in front of the England backline.

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque was not concerned about the result that followed losses to Portugal, Argentina and Italy.

"I don't think it's a case of us approaching these games in too relaxed a manner," Del Bosque said. "We're not complacent. Yes, we've had four defeats, but I don't think we've taken any of these  games lightly. You could see the intensity that the Spanish players played with. We played at 100 percent, at full pace. England only got near our goal with one chance from the free-kick. We dominated the game to a great degree."
