Fernando Torres insists that Spain are 'psychologically prepared' for their crucial World Cup clash with Chile next week.

Fernando Torres has insisted that Spain are 'psychologically ready' for their crucial World Cup encounter with Chile.

The reigning champions saw their hopes of reaching the second round suffer a serious blow on Friday as they were thrashed 5-1 by the Netherlands.

Another defeat would all but signal the end of their title defence, but Torres is confident that the Spaniards can get a positive result against Chile.

"Psychologically we are prepared," the striker told FIFA.com. "We need to look at Chile and analyse them.

"Mentally I think the team is prepared for a situation like this. This group has gone through very good and very bad moments together. We know what we are capable of and I don't think the psychological factor will be a problem."

Spain meet Chile in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday.
