Goalkeeper Yassine Bounou saved the midfielder’s penalty when the 2010 world champions failed to score any of their penalties.
“It was a shame.
It was decided on penalties in the cruelest way,” Busquets said.
“It was hard, very hard for us.
We tried to wear them down, turn them around, find spaces.
We lacked that little luck for the final ball.
The 34-year-old Busquets was not immediately asked if he would continue playing international football.
“Now the most important thing is the national team and not me,” said the Barcelona player.
“It’s a tough night and we have to get up and use this as experience for our game.
There are some very young players who this will help a lot.
Spanish goalkeeper Unai Simón was the hero in Euro 2020 against Switzerland in the quarterfinal round but this time he could only stop one of Morocco’s attempts.
I think that in the 120 minutes of the match we were better than our rivals, but what I say now is of little use if we don’t find the net”, Simon added , who saved Badr Benoun’s penalty.
“In the penalty shootout they were superior and that took them to the quarterfinals.
“We are seeing that there are surprises throughout the World Cup. We weren’t able to overcome them and we didn’t expect to be knocked out against Morocco, but it’s the reality and now we have to go home”.
