Puyol to decide on future after final


POTCHEFSTROOM, July 9 – Veteran defender Carles Puyol, whose headed goal took Spain into the World Cup final, will make a decision on his international future after Sunday's title showdown with Holland."What faces us is beautiful and after that will be the time to think," the 32-year-old Puyol said Thursday.

"No decision has been made. I will talk about it with the coach Vicente Del Bosque and the sporting director (Fernando Hierro) after the final."

Barcelona star Puyol made his international debut in 2000 against the Dutch in a friendly and on Sunday will be winning his 90th cap.
