Luis Enrique has very clear thoughts about the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The Spanish coach certainly did not hide his ambitions on the eve of the “Red Fury”‘s debut against the Costa Rica national team.
“We’re here to go all the way, to play seven games, but it’s true for us and also for the other national teams, they all aim to win the World Cup.”. These are the key words of the press conference held by the Asturiana coach, compiled by Italpress.
The former Roma and Barcelona coach expressed great confidence in his young squad, aware of his role: “The captain of the national team should be the coach. He’s the one who makes the choices, he picks the players, the travel plans and everything else, he’s the one who has to find the solutions. I feel great, I’m very calm and I can’t wait for a moment to make my debut with the aim of making our fans happy.”
After winning in 2010, Spain have put together two disappointing editions, with exit from the group in 2014 and the round of 16 in 2018. So Luis Enrique is well aware of the importance of starting on the right foot: “I deal with the feelings of making a debut normally, but it’s obviously a special moment, like the World Cup, I think the lack of time to prepare was a good thing, otherwise it would have been very difficult to manage. A very tough game awaits us, against an opponent who knows what it means to play in a cup.” the scientist “.
