Spain coach Luis Aragones was preaching postivity ahead of his side´s European Championships quarter-final against Italy, even though he concedes they have probably been handed the toughest tie of the remaining teams.

Aragones´ side completed their group phase with a 100% record after Dani Guiza´s 88th-minute header earned a 2-1 victory over deposed champions Greece. But Aragones knows his side will have their work cut out against the reigning world champions if they are to make the last four.

"We know we have a great rival ahead of us, it´s going to be complicated but they probably think the same about us," said Aragones, whose side beat Italy 1-0 in a friendly earlier this year.
