VICENTE Del Bosque is yet to be pleased by his Spanish side in the World Cup.

Apart from their game against Honduras, in which they cantered to a 2-0 victory, Spain have hardly looked a side that conquered Euro 2008, as they perennially struggle for rhythm in the World Cup.

Even when his men edged out Paraguay to advance to the semifinals at Ellis Park on Saturday, Del Bosque never beamed with joy.

Famed for his humility, patience and unassuming style, Del Bosque is not one to stay restless.

It was no different when the out-of-sorts La Roja were being frustrated by the robust Paraguayan side in their quarterfinal battle at Ellis Park on Saturday.

"On their part the Paraguayans did well to deny us space to play our game and their players exercised great pressure," he said.

Del Bosque's side have now set up a semifinal date with the firing Germans in Durban on Wednesday.

"The Germans are in great form at the moment . but there is no reason to fear them."

David Villa's goal was well-received by the Spaniards as it sent La Roja to their first-ever World Cup semifinals.
