Luis Enrique gives insight into pre-match routine with Spain

Speaking on his Twitch channel in Qatar, Spain head coach Luis Enrique discussed what it’s like inside the La Roja dressing room minutes before Spain games.

Pre-match plan

“We have an eight to 10 minute reminder with a video for the players. What I do like to do before I go out on the pitch is give them my thoughts and my feelings before Busquets takes over. We are very careful about over-excitement. For the first game, we won’t touch the stress button because in the first game people can get too excited. We will have to calm things down.”

The player who surprised you the most in the Spain squad

“The first day Ansu played, I said to the guy next to me, but this is Oliver and Benji, or who is this? Marco Asensio is in fine form. Dani Olmo is in great shape too.”

Physical condition

“The players are very fresh. These players play can two games in a row because they have unlimited energy. The physical condition of all the teams is very good. “

The possible surprise package at World Cup

“The Netherlands have made a big change. Denmark are doing very well. Hopefully, Spain will spring a surprise. It would be nice to give the country something.”
