Statements Czech Republic

Vladimir Coufal, player of the Czechs, spoke ahead of this match: "Even considering what we saw in the videos before the first game, it's clear that they don't change their style much. They can push opponents whether they play us, France or anyone else. I don't think they would change their style, which they play from the age of sixteen to the adult armband."

Czech Republic statement

Jaroslav Šilhavý, coach of the Czech Republic, spoke ahead of the match: "It will be more difficult for sure. They don't change the way they play. That's how they crush their opponents. It's going to be worse, because they're playing at home. We know that. And they are hurt by the point we took from them. It's not that they are scared by the draw in Prague, I don't think so. It's going to be tougher, we know that". "They are both very strong. Individually and collectively. In all aspects of the game. Spain has a very clear plan. They press very high and their idea is to always maintain that pressure. I was more impressed with Spain than Portugal. I think they are an impressive team in many facets of the game". "It's already the last game. We are all the same. Nobody has told me I can't play. We take everything into account, that's why we make changes."

Statements Spain

Luis Enrique spoke before the match: "The result conditions everything. That's how soccer works. This team (Switzerland) had gone 23 games without losing an official match at home and we had the chance to beat them".

"The result determines the outcome. I'm happy with the spirit of the players and their attitude. It's a positive match that gives us the possibility to still depend on us".

"When they press us, they take us to one side of the field and we have no solutions. When we do that very well, you can hit a ball up top; and we change the pressure. We are good there too. But it's not our identity. Our identity is to get the ball played. You have to have personality to play."

"This is a game of mistakes. It's a game to be proud of what the national team is. The first half is more complete. In the second half we did not have a more forceful behavior of ball possession, which forced the opponent more ."

"I have three starting goalkeepers and today Unai Simón has played in all three games. I want all three toe-to-toe, thinking they can participate. I'm delighted. Any of the three could play. What will happen tomorrow? Tomorrow you will see. We have to be prepared to be a competitive team, that doesn't notice the absences, due to injury, poor form or whatever. The three goalkeepers give me a lot of peace of mind." "Any of the strikers, the wingers can all play as 9. The 9 that I have brought in cannot all play as wingers, Álvaro can play. Defensively, if there is any 9 like Álvaro in Europe, he is equal to him, he is not better than any of them. And he has been very good on the ball. What are we looking for? There is an offensive and a defensive facet. Maybe other teams focus only on scoring goals. With us, if they don't do the defensive work, it's no good for us." "Look at the results of the other groups in the league, that's of no interest to anyone. Look at the Nations League and World Cup champions, France. Nobody wins easily. If they pretend we are different, we are not different. It's impossible, but not for us, for everyone".
