World champions Spain are not football's rigid "Talibans" and can vary their trademark possession football if necessary, coach Vicente del Bosque has said.The Netherlands now have a coach in Louis van Gaal who hopes to continue the Dutch traditions of total football but has also admitted that he will look to bolster the defense against Spain with five at the back in the Group B match at Salvadore.Del Bosque was prepared in case Spain's group rivals, that also include Chile and Australia, opt to sit back.Winners of the last two European Championships, Spain return to Brazil where they lost the Confederations Cup final last year against the home nation, in front of some hostile crowds.Australia appear the weakest side in the group but Chile look strong opponents that play quick, attacking football inspired by Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez.
