Cesc Fàbregas has made it clear that Wednesday's match against Chile "is a matter of life or death, in which we are going to give it everything and win because that is the only option that we have got".
"They will go out to pressure us with a very high line and look to beat us in a very physical game. We have to take advantage of their weaknesses because it is a game of life or death that we must win, because if we don't, we know we are going home", Chelsea's new signing said.
"For us it is vitally important, this group of players can't be knocked out like that and we will fight and give it everything to the very last minute", he added.
Fàbregas was also keen for the game to come round as quick as possible. "You always need some time to analyse the mistakes you have made so they don't happen again but at the same time for our heads we need to play again as quickly as possible. In football we are lucky that every three or four days there is another game and if you have a bad result you still have the chance to change things", he said.
He also made it clear that Spain have proved to be strong in the past in the most difficult of circumstances. "This team has courage and the character to turn things round. This is one of the most complicated moments we have faced but I have every confidence in this group of players, we always face up to things and this time will be no different as we try to get the six points required to go through".
