Spain manager Luis Enrique hailed Pau Torres and Aymeric Laporte for the defensive pair’s impressive performance in their 0-0 friendly draw against Portugal.

Aymeric Laporte

was assigned as his replacement after the 27-year-old announced being called up to be part of the Spain squad last month.

Pau Torres

was having his 8th cap and the Spain boss was impressed.

I have seen the two starting centre-backs as sensational, they were superb”,

he told a post match interview with

Marca

.

“They both played a game bordering on the outstanding.”

The duo were substituted off in the final half hour and Barcelona’s new man Eric Garcia and Leeds United’s Diego Llorente made their appearances.

However, according to Enrique’s comments, Torres and Laporte will be the ones to line up together for Spain’s Euro 2020 opener battle against Sweden on June 14.
