Spain striker Fernando Torres reveals that his side will bounce back from their defeat to Brazil in the Confederations Cup final.

Spain striker Fernando Torres is determined to defend his side's World Cup crown when they travel to Brazil again for the tournament next year.

Vicente del Bosque's team fell to a 3-0 defeat to the hosts in the final of the Confederations Cup on Sunday.

Torres told FIFA.com: "This team doesn't need a wake-up call, nor do we need a defeat to regain our motivation.

"If there is something positive to be taken from the match, it's this: it's confirmed something that we already knew, that it's not going to be easy to beat Brazil on their own patch.

"That said, in one year's time we'll be back here as world champions to defend what's ours."

Torres won the Golden Boot at the competition as he scored five goals.
