Spain defender Sergio Ramos has promised to help return the country its former glory following a dismal FIFA World Cup campaign.
The 2010 champions got off to a dreadful start as they suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of eventual group winners the Netherlands, before falling to a 2-0 loss against Chile.
That result saw them eliminated from the competition, but they did at least save some face with 3-0 win over Australia in their closing fixture.
And, after returning to his homeland, Real Madrid vice-captain Ramos took to Twitter to make a promise to Spanish supporters.
"Falling isn't important, what is is knowing how to get up," he tweeted. "We'll bring you back the pride of feeling like champions."
