Coach Enrique: ‘It’s easy to play with Germany’

The Spanish coach joked about the great German war in the group considered to be death at the 2022 World Cup.

“It’s easy, isn’t it? It’s also easy. It’s only Germany. It’s going to be great.” Enrique said while laughing when asked about Spain and Germany in Group E of the World Cup 2022 after the draw in Doha (Qatar) on April 1. The remaining two opponents in this group are Japan and the winner of the intercontinental play-off between Costa Rica and New Zealand.

In the last encounter in the group stage of the Nations League 2020-2021, at home of La Cartuja (Sevilla), Spain shocked when beat Germany 6-0. This is the heaviest win in the history of the confrontation between these two teams. Before that, on the journey to win Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010, Spain defeated Germany. At the Euro 2008 final, they won thanks to a goal from Fernando Torres. Two years later, Spain continued to beat Germany with a header from Carles Puyol, and then beat the Netherlands in the final with a second extra-time goal from Andres Iniesta.

After the joke, coach Enrique admitted that Germany has also improved significantly recently. Under the new coach Hansi Flickthey won all eight matches, scored 33 goals and conceded only two, before letting the host Netherlands draw 1-1 in a friendly match on March 29. “Germany flourished after changing the coach. We can see that when their parameters improve clearly,” said Enrique. “Germany is also in the transition period like Spain. But anyway we are still ranked seventh in FIFA, and will swallow the world.”

The 51-year-old coach emphasized: “My opinion remains the same as before the draw, unchanged. Whoever the opponent is, being present at the World Cup is already a reward for us. Being seeded bronze that means Spain have been playing well lately.We have to face Germany, and I don’t have much information on the rest of the teams yet.I will have to spend some time analyzing.We will continue to believe. Spain’s style of play and ideas are very clear. Playing with Spain is very complicated, and it’s very difficult to beat us. Any team can beat Spain. , and Spain can beat any opponent”.

When asked about the remaining opponents, he admitted: “I don’t know about Japan, but meeting them will be very difficult. We will kick the other opponent in the opening match. And from personal experience, I know that playing the first game of a major tournament is never easy.”
