Fernando Torres: Wants to set the record straight in Brazil in 2014

Fernando Torres has vowed Spain will return to Brazil in one year's time to win the World Cup after their Confederations Cup reality check.

The reigning world and two-time European champions were humbled 3-0 by Brazil at the weekend in the Rio de Janeiro final to end their 29-match unbeaten run in competitive internationals.

Spain will therefore be back in South America next summer to defend their World Cup title and they will have a score to settle.

"You can't win every time," said Spain and Chelsea striker Torres. "That said, in one year's time, we will be back here as world champions to defend what's ours.

"Next year we're coming over here to make it four [World Cups and European Championships]."

But Torres does not think Spain will be purely looking to set the record straight against Brazil if they again meet the World Cup hosts.

"Football is great for that, because you always get another chance," he said when asked about a possible revenge mission.

"One year from now, hopefully we'll be here and have a chance to make up for today [Sunday], not necessarily to gain revenge on Brazil, but for our own sake."
