Spain have been dominating the international football stage having won Euro 2008 and 2012 as well as the 2010 World Cup.and are currently top of the FIFA wolrd rankings.
Seven of Spain's Euro 2012 winning squad have experienced English football or are currently playing in the Premier League and Del Bosque credited it as a major factor in their growth as a team, citing Cesc Fabregas as a prime example of a player nurtured in the English game.
"The departure of Spanish players to other leagues, and especially to the English league, has grown Spanish football and has been good for the national team," he told reporters.
"Already we have seen this with the evolution of Cesc Fabregas and this trend is now increasing.
"We have followed everyone in England via television and scouting reports that have come in on all the players. But, I'm very glad to have seen them live and how they all did."
Del Bosque was spotted at a Swansea match observing Spaniard Michu, who has taken the Premier League by storm since joining the Swans in the summer with 13 goals scored so far this season.
The coach has promised Michu a call-up following his performances and explained that players performing well will not be overlooked ahead of big names.
"He plays in a position where we also have [Andres] Iniesta, [Juan] Mata and [David] Silva, among others. Those players have been champions of Europe and the world," he added.
"But that does not mean we're ignoring the best performances. It is great that our players are out there."
