Lack of potency in attack is making it difficult for Spain to live up to the expectations set by winning the World Cup and two European Championships in the recent golden spell for the country.Spain won the 2008 and 2012 European Championships along with the World Cup in between, with forwards David Villa and Fernando Torres in their pomp but since then the goals have dried up.Vicente del Bosque's side are still well-placed to qualify for Euro 2016 but more is expected of a side boasting so much talent. They lie three points behind leaders Slovakia in Group C with 15 points from six games.Players like Silva and Cesc Fabregas, who were regular goal scorers for the national team, have lately failed to contribute consistently and perhaps the answer was to be more direct.
