"They are three great points that place us in the best position to put us in the semi-finals," said to reporters afterwards.
Luis Suarez took some of the shine off of a brilliant display from the Spaniards with a sublime free kick providing a consolation for La Celeste, but the 62-year-old insisted that his team had played well.
"[I am satisfied] not only by the performance of the first half, but also by the second. We played well, although everything was marred by the end.
"We grew very tired in the last minutes. It is normal with the high temperature that we suffer."
Spain currently sit top of Group B and take on Tahiti at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro in their next outing on Thursday.
