National coach Luis Enrique thinks that Spain can do much better after a gala performance | football world cup

The Spanish national coach Luis Enrique thinks that his team can play even better than in the 7-0 group match against Costa Rica. The Spaniards had a dream start on Wednesday at the World Cup in Qatar.

“We can now enjoy ourselves, but then we will immediately focus on Sunday’s game against Germany,” said Luis Enrique. He also knew that the starting position of the Germans after their surprise defeat against Japan is different: “They have to win.”

Spain had no child at Costa Rica and was supreme from the first to the last minute. Well before the half-time signal, it was already clear that Spain would win the match. Due to goals from Dani Olmo, Marco Asenio and Ferran Torres, Costa Rica of national coach Luis Fernando Suárez faced a 3-0 deficit halfway through.

In the second half, the 2010 world champion took it up a notch. Torres scored again and Barcelona talent Gavi scored arguably the best goal of the game. Substitutes Carlos Soler and Álvaro Morata then also scored a goal.

According to Luis Enrique, his team can do much better than they showed against the poor Costa Ricans. “Our goal is to constantly dominate the game and for that you need to have the ball,” the coach told Spanish TV channel TVE.

“Your opponent gets tired and can’t get in. The way we pressed was exceptional and the 16 players we used were excellent. But there is definitely room for improvement.”

Germany-Spain starts on Sunday at 8 p.m. (Dutch time). Earlier in the day, E Japan-Costa Rica is scheduled in the same group.
