It wasn't our day: Del Bosque

Striker Fernando Torres came on as a 62nd minute double substitution with Jesus Navas for Spain after the tournament favourites went 1-0 behind to Switzerland in their opening World Cup Group H match on Wednesday.

Torres was declared fit after recovering from knee surgery but the coach opted to start the match with David Villa playing as a lone forward.

With the substitutions, Spain were playing with three strikers. But none made an impact. 

"We tried in an orthodox way and in an heroic way but we were not able to source. It wasn't our day. We dominated almost all the match," Spain coach Vicente del Bosque said.

"This defeat means that we have to win the other two (group) matches," he added.
