Busquets the man to stop Sneijder

2010-07-10 09:23

Spain midfielder Sergio Busquets believes he has the secret recipe

to stop the Netherlands midfield general Wesley Sneijder in his tracks by not

giving him time to think.

Busquets said: “Sneijder has shown what a great player he is,

winning the treble with Inter Milan this season. To stop him we need to stay

together as a unit and not allow him time to even think. That is what we did

with Germany’s Özil.”

The Barcelona midfielder believes that Spain played their best

match of the tournament so far in the semifinal but hopes they can go one better

in the final.

The game will take place at Soccer City in Johannesburg and

Busquets added: “When you get to the final stages of a tournament there are no

easy opponents.”

He also confirmed that his room had been robbed on the morning of

the semifinal against Germany but refused to elaborate because he did not want

“any sort of distractions ahead of the final”.

He said, jokingly: “I will gladly change my wallet for a World Cup

winners medal.”
