FIFA WC: “We Were Exceptional,” Says Spain Head Coach Luis Enrique

Al Thumama [Qatar]: Following his team’s thumping 7-0 win over Costa Rica, Spain head coach Luis Enrique said that his team was exceptional in their ball handling and finishing, with the same philosophy they have been playing with for years.

Spain thumped Costa Rica 7-0 in a dominant display of football in its opening match at the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Wednesday at the Al Thumama stadium. “When things go like this, football becomes a wonderful sport. We were exceptional in our ball handling and finishing, with the same philosophy that the national team has had for years. We were exceptional in pressing and the 17 players who took part were very good,” Spain head coach Luis Enrique was quoted as saying by Skysports.

“It is the national team that scores the most goals in all the championships we have been in. We may not have a benchmark player who scores 30 goals but we have Ferran, Dani Olmo, Marco Asensio, Gavi… I’ve never been worried about finding goals,” he added.
Coming to the match, the Spanish team added four more goals to their tally, piling up the misery on Costa Rica, in the second half of the match.

Spain scored through Ferran Torres, Gavi, Carlos Soler and Alvaro Morata in the second half, stamping their authority over the Central-American team.

The Spanish team replicated their superb performance from the first half as their opponents did not have any answer to their attacks, orchestrated by Sergio Busquets.

Owing to superior midfield play, Spain was able to create more scoring opportunities than Costa Rica, who simply were on the defence right from the beginning.
