Andres Iniesta has conceded Spain will have to step up a gear if they are to overcome Holland in Sunday's World Cup final.
Although the Euro 2008 winners have lived up to their pre-tournament billing by reaching the decider at Soccer City to give them a shot at lifting the greatest trophy in the game for the first time, they have still not managed to hit top form.
And Iniesta acknowledges second best is not going to be good enough this time around, saying: "We will play better because we will probably have to if we are going to win the World Cup."
He added: "What we did in the semi-final certainly won't help us to win the final. But I have confidence in my team-mates and I think this group is able to take the final step."
