Friendly: “The teams do not have much time to train and we have practically had to play this match between two European champion teams without prior training. But the pandemic has compressed the entire calendar and we are in this new situation to which we all must adapt.”

Spain: “It is a team with a DNA similar to that of Portugal and it has been a balanced game, but we have been closer to the goal with the shot at the posts. But in terms of football we have seen that we have faced two great teams. Spain, as always, generates a lot of football and knows what it plays. “

Match: “At the start of the game Spain was better, but afterwards control was clearly from Portugal and the best chances too. Like Luis Enrique, I agree that the game only lacked the goals.”
