But were in control of thengameminnthensecondnhalf. -we dominated it.It was fantastic to repeat our 2-0 victory."We can always improve and I was impressed by some of the players who played tonight, who did not play so regularly. "We have shown we can mix it with the best in the world."We showed we could stay strong against a physical side and keep to our game plan."I am a realist. I will enjoy this time, but the thing that made me happy is conviction of the players on the field."As for the World Cup, it will be about the same favourites, but we will try and do put best against them. We play Brazil in three days time in a friendly and so I must keep our feet on the ground."Sanchez can be star of the World Cup. Our keeper kept us clam when we were under pressure. His extra height helped us."
