Luis Enrique insists that his side was the better team against Croatia since the beginning.

After

Spain’s

5-3 win against

Croatia

in the Euro 2020 round of 16, La Roja’s head coach has warned their opponents that any team who wants to defeat Spain must be ready for a battle.

Spain conceded the first goal in the game by an own goal, but then they returned from one goal down to a 3-1 lead in the 77th minute to see their opponents level the game at the last minute and take everything to the extra time where they scored two more goals and win the game 5-3.

“We’ve been superior to Croatia from the start, but we conceded the goal after missing two clear chances, from Koke and Morata”,

as per reports from

Diario AS

.

“But the team has fought on, and they believed and the game leaves us many positive things to think about.

“This team has a goal and that is to play football well. But whoever wants to beat us is going to have to run a lot and play very well.”

Luis Enrique’s men will face the winner of France’s game against Switzerland, and La Roja wants to reach the semi-final of a major tournament which they haven’t been able to do since Euro 2012.
