Hupu News, October 14 Spanish coach Luis Enrique attended the post-match press conference with Ukraine.
For this game, there is no problem on the surface, but occasionally not scoring goals is not the end of the world. We created enough opportunities today. Of course, I don’t know why the players do not score.
Today’s game was indeed very difficult for us. The opponents were defending the game and blocked all our passing routes, including some breakthrough space created by Adama, which could not be finally grasped.
If we can score 1 goal in the first half, it might be better to play. At the end of the game, we played a little bit more panicked, because everyone was thinking about scoring quickly. We were not very effective in controlling offensive and defensive transitions today.
No, because when you are attacking the opponent, it is very possible for the opponent to seize the opportunity of offensive and defensive conversion. We played well in the first half, but in the second half of this counterattack, they were very precise. In the face of a strong enemy, once the defensive side can stand firm, then there will indeed be some ideas. Ukraine played well, and we should congratulate them.
I think as professional footballers, we should look at the game calmly. Of course, I don’t think we lack anything. We have created a lot of opportunities and constantly control the game. Of course, I have also lost such games, although not many.
This game was lost, but today we created a lot of opportunities. The position was very accurate, but it was just a bit close to the goal. The opponent played well. At this time, set kicks, corner kicks, and all possible scores, although today is a counterattack.
This is what the national team looks like. It may lose, but I am satisfied with the attitude of the team today, the hunger of the team, and the players on the field. There is no problem. We are still at the top of the list, and there will be an international competition day in November.
Of course, but I think it’s really not a good habit to always talk about the goalkeeper. We can all do better, and I am the first person. Now once we have a problem, everyone will start to do this. If it always does, it will be really boring.
I have no plans to adjust my thinking, my thinking is like this, it hasn't changed. Of course, as coaches we need to adjust and accept new ideas. For today's game as a whole, in our plan, Spain could have won, but lost the game while controlling the game, typically winning without scoring.
Of course, the opponent will definitely fight back, and today is indeed seizing the opportunity. But I believe this result is deceptive. I am still very objective about this result and will not be shaken or doubted because of it. I still have full confidence in my team.
Of course, we have to make adjustments. This is what we have been doing. Towards the end of the game, we once brought Ramos to the front line, but the situation at the time was also difficult to score. In the final stage of the game, of course, we hope to score goals. Every player wants to score goals, but we need to know that this time requires not only enthusiasm, but also brain.
But we still have to see the positive side, our players did not give up offense. And now we are still at the top of the list, we must know that this is not an easy group, opponents include Germany, Switzerland, Ukraine, we have two games, and finally see if we can qualify.
I still said that defense is a matter of 11 people, not De Gea alone. It is not reasonable to blame him alone. We need to calm down and take a good look at today's game. Of course, every player is also responsible for doing better.
My two big eyes have been staring at them all the time. I will pay attention to every player. I admire these players. Of course, I am very satisfied with my lineup, and I have so many players to choose from. This is a good thing. The national team coach will have trouble with himself.
