Luis Enrique tasked with finding Spain's sweet spot

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

But David de Gea allowing Cristiano Ronaldo's shot to skip off his hands was not the cause of Spain failing to break down Russian Federation before losing to the hosts on penalties at the World Cup, and neither was a penchant for texting or fried food. I am delighted with him.

"We have to evolve that idea, flawless it, make it even better, so we can surprise opponents and they don't know how we will play", he said upon taking over at Barcelona. "I think their game will be based on pace and pressing", he says.

Sergio Ramos will be partnered by Real Madrid colleague Nacho at centre-back following Gerard Pique's worldwide retirement, while the creative burden in midfield rests with Thiago, Saul Niguez and Isco after cap centurions David Silva and Andres Iniesta stepped away. I have my own personal challenge in that I have been a first choice under all of the national team coaches I've played under.

Luis Enrique has already said he plans to place youth at the heart of the new era, and he made those intentions clear by including three uncapped players - Real Betis goalkeeper Pau Lopez, Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and Valencia left-back Jose Gaya - in his first squad.

He said, "I'm 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. I hope he is with us a long time, for many years, pushing his team-mates to victory". I act based on the team's needs.




The team has had plenty of success in the last ten years, winning the 2008 Euro, 2012 Euro and 2010 World Cup.

Luis Enrique is also making plans to give Spain a psychological edge, according to Clotet. The manager has told his players that there will be no more Ludo and PlayStation.

It's been a stark change to how things were conducted under Julen Lopetegui, the coach fired two days before the World Cup for accepting a job with Real Madrid without telling federation officials in advance.

The coach appears to be taking a hard line to try to get "La Roja" back on track after its recent setbacks, imposing strict new rules that include a cellphone ban during meals.

So far, Enrique's players were not complaining.
