Head Coach Spain – Alberto Suarez Menendez

We are very happy for the win and we are very satisfied that we proved that we can play against two diiferent sistems of difence. Very important two points for us.

We played very well in defense, goalkeepers were also good but we performed very bad in attack. When you don’t score goals there is not chance for good result. We will have to play much better in Sunday against Croatia.
