Cape Town - Sergio Ramos insists the Spain national team will soon restore the 'pride' of the nation following their disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign.

La Furia Roja saw their title defence come to an end after just two group-stage games in Brazil as they lost to the Netherlands and then Chile to render their 3-0 win over Australia inconsequential.

The Spanish have since arrived back in their homeland where the disappointment is palpable, but Real Madrid star Ramos insists their failed attempt in South America is by no means a sign of things to come.

"Falling isn't important, what is is knowing how to get up. We'll bring you back the pride of feeling like champions," he posted on his official Twitter profile.

Meanwhile, Andres Iniesta echoed his international team-mate's sentiments, tweeting: "There's not a lot to be said at times like these. We are extremely disappointed to be returning home so soon. We were raring to have a good World Cup, but it didn't work out like that.

"I would like to apologise and I can assure you that we will be working hard to put the national team back where it belongs."
