P.m.: Spain On Track For Economic Growth, Job Creation In 2014

As expected, Georgia opted for the ultra-defensive tactics the majority of Spain's opponents fall back on but coach Vicente Del Bosque's decision to add width and pace to his formation from the start paid off handsomely. With Jesus Navas on the right wing and Pedro on the left, backed up by attack-minded fullbacks Juanfran and Alberto Moreno, Spain looked much more dangerous than in some of their previous Group I displays. Del Bosque has often foregone a traditional striker and used midfielder Cesc Fabregas as a "false nine" and while it has generally been effective the world and European champions have sometimes looked sluggish going forward. But with the tall and powerful Alvaro Negredo causing havoc in the Georgia defence, and the wide players providing excellent service, there was much more zip to the Spanish forward forays. Negredo, in particular, has shone in Spain's recent outings and as well as grabbing the opener and hitting a post on Tuesday he also scored in Friday's 2-1 home win over Belarus. He almost scored a spectacular overhead kick against the Georgians in the 20th minute but was denied http://www.dailystrength.org/people/3007314/journal/7537513 by a brilliant save from goalkeeper Roin Kvaskhvadze.

The forward has scored four goals in seven games for the Citizens so far this season - but is yet to hit the dizzying heights of his time at Sevilla, where he scored 69 goals in 139 appearances. Del Bosque, speaking to reporters after Spain qualified for next summer's World Cup in Brazil, said: "He [Negredo] is a striker who doesn't play as well as his ability permits. He still hasn't discovered his full potential." The 62-year-old manager was particularly impressed with Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta's display. He [Iniesta] is a great role model and we took him off in the last few minutes because he deserved an ovation from his home crowd," added Del Bosque . It's practically a routine for us because we keep on qualifying for tournaments but we have to remember that it's an important success, because Spain were qualifying for tournaments long before me and my team arrived.

After starting with two wins, Hungary have suffered successive defeats but things could have been different had Krisztian Adorjan's second-half effort found the net instead of being deflected onto the woodwork. That came against the run of play as holders Spain dominated throughout in Cartagena but were unable to build on the lead created when Morata met Pablo Sarabia's perfect cross from the left. Sarabia was excellent throughout, a constant thorn in the Hungary side, but the hosts were unable to create a cushion. Juan Bernat, Iker Muniain and Morata were denied by Levente Jova before half-time while Oliver Torres ought to have made more of Sarabia's cross. It was all Spain, but any notion of complacency was quashed on the hour when Adorjan's shot was cleared off the line via the bar by Daniel Carvajal. Spain took tighter control of the game and though they did not really look like adding to their advantage an opening for Morata aside 1-0 proved visit the site enough.

The prime minister was responding to a question from the leader of the opposition Spanish Socialist Workers Party, or PSOE, Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, about the importance he gives to research and development spending. Rubalcaba said R&D spending was cut by 2.5 billion euros ($3.38 billion) in 2012 and 2013, with the increase of 200 million euros ($271 million) projected for 2014 making scientists view budgets with a mixture of "despair and frustration." A national day of mourning for science is planned in Spain on Thursday, the opposition leader said, adding that the event amounted to a day of mourning for the country's future. Rajoy said R&D was an important factor in Spain's economic recovery "but not the only one." Research and development will receive "maximum attention" in the future, Rajoy said. The structural problems in Spain's economy, such as the budget deficit, exports, prices, the foreign debt and the problems in the financial industry, were the most important issues that had to be addressed, Rajoy said. "We have crafted an economic policy that was imperative and necessary to overcome the extremely serious situation that you left us," the prime minister told Rubalcaba. http://free.yudu.com/item/details/1324526/Student-Loans-Debt-Crisis-Could-Trigger-Another-Re

Spain progress pleases Del Bosque

"He is a striker who plays below the potential that he has. There is still a lot within that player yet to be discovered." The Manchester City FC forward's 26th-minute strike represented the 200th goal of the Del Bosque era and also helped Spain set a new record of 52 unbeaten World Cup qualifiers. "I am happy to have helped the team achieve the win as the three points were massive for us," the 28-year-old Negredo said. "I appreciate the amount of playing time I am being given and I try to take advantage. It's a big success to be in the World Cup finals. It's a really positive thing and despite being favourites to advance you always need to put in the work to get there." UEFA.com 1998-2013.
