Luis Enrique tasked with finding Spain's sweet spot

Three important questions we need answered in Spain’s UEFA Nations League games

Three important questions we need answered in Spain’s UEFA Nations League games

I know the English fans will give the receptions players deserve.

Like a general inspecting his troops, new Spain coach Luis Enrique stood on a makeshift platform and attentively watched as his players practiced below on a recent hot morning in Madrid.

Iago Aspas was preparing for a quiet week after not being selected by Luis Enrique to the Spain squad but then suddenly he received the call to join up after Diego Costa was injured. He likes his teams to be very dynamic, with good balance between the offensive and defensive game.

"We have a new coach and we start a new chapter with enthusiasm".

Calls for De Gea to lose his place intensified throughout Spain's disappointing World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, most notably after he allowed a tame Cristiano Ronaldo shot to squirm through his hands during a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal in the group stage.

On winning the Champions League, Messi said it is more complicated with more teams with resources to bring in top players . Real lost their Super Cup game against Atletico Madrid, but have won three games in a row to start their LaLiga campaign.

Isco hits back at the journalist regarding Spain's FIFA World Cup failure. I am not really concerned about that. "He has not only managed Barcelona, Roma and Celta Vigo, he has also managed Barcelona's reserve team and worked with their youth teams, so in that sense he has a development mentality".

Isco is also on board with Enrique's decision to ban phones at the dinner table, adding: "It's always good to have a little bit of discipline, not having phones at meals is a good idea to me, these days we are often more focused on machines than speaking with our team mates".

"I think it's a similar situation to what happened with the Spanish national team under Luis Aragones in around 2006".

Although rumors have swirled about a possible shake-up following De Gea's performance at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Enrique on Friday said he had no doubts about the Manchester United net minder nor about his starting line-up for Saturday's contest at Wembley Stadium in London, reports Efe news.

So far, Enrique's players were not complaining.
