“Bringing on Sergio Ramos was to respect and recognise a player and enable that he continues to add games to his record,” he said. “I didn’t make the change solely to generate good vibes.”
“In the second half we had imbalances in pressure, but we must recognise the difficult of playing against the Netherlands. We will try to rectify it.”
Enrique also had a talk aboutJose Gaya
