Fabregas, Del Bosque bust-up played down by Albiol
It has been claimed that Fabregas' attitude was called into question by the 63-year-old, with Spain facing just one more match – against Australia – before heading home after the defending champions suffered an early elimination.
However, Albiol played down suggestions that the situation was anything more than a slight disagreement, putting it down to frustration more than anything.
"I haven't seen anything strange," the Napoli defender said.
"I guess it is just frustration from the team that we have been eliminated, nothing more.
"Obviously we were all desperate to qualify, Cesc as well, but I haven't seen anything strange with regards to Cesc."
