“Happiness and joy” – described his emotions in a full-time Luis Enrique. “It is a reinforcement for the players. We’re on our way to winning again.”

Happiness and Joy

Luis Enrique was understandably excited after Spain’s 6-0 thrashing of Germany in the UEFA Nations League. Ferran Torres scored a hat-trick as Joachim Low’s side had no response to Spain’s relentless attacking play. La Roja had entered the game needing a win to advance to the Nations League final after an inconsistent group stage campaign. “Happiness and joy” – described his emotions in a full-time Luis Enrique. “It is a reinforcement for the players. We’re on our way to winning again. Now it’s time to enjoy this moment. We felt that there was not a single game that deserved to be lost in the group stages. We scored 13 goals and conceded three – they are the numbers and we deserved more in this group stage.”

Spain played like it was a crunch game

“We know which country we are in and we accept the criticism. We ignore a lot of it and we will neither be that good nor that bad when it comes to talking about lack of goals. I don’t think the criticism was unfair. We need to know how to live with it and with opinions. From the fans, we only felt love. It’s a shame that we did not have people in the stands today. It was an indispensable match for Spain if they wanted to qualify for the final for the Nations League. The players know what kind ability they have,” continued Luis Enrique “The goal has been achieved, and now we will enjoy the final stage. The idea was to play the game like it was a crunch game at the European Championship.”

Sergio Canales and Sergio Ramos came out with injuries during the first half. “The doctors will tell you how serious the injuries are,” added Luis Enrique. “It looks serious, but I feel bad for their clubs.”
