Luis Enrique on Germany draw, Japan and Rodri

Luis Enrique was satisfied with Spain’s draw against Germany but was disappointed that the German goal came from a “mistake that we don’t usually make”.

Overall analysis

“When I watch the game afterward, I’ll like it better. Especially this one. I saw a first half that was perhaps better, but we lacked a little bit of confidence to realise that we could hurt Germany more. We couldn’t control the game and they caught us with a mistake. We were ambitious until the end and I’ll be happy to see that tomorrow,” he said in quotes reported by AS.

The goal conceded

“The mistake was in the way we came out with the ball, a mistake we don’t usually make. That’s how it works in football.”


“I liked the attitude we had of going out to win the game. We will go out to win against Japan and we want to go through as group winners.”

Rodri at the back

“Rodri at centre-back, we’ll see what options we come up with. We are confident in what we do and how we do it.”
