Enrique considers France favourites in terms of individual quality

Spain cut Italy's winning streak on Wednesday to reach the Nations League final against France. La Roja manager Luis Enrique is confident in his team's abilities, but at the same time, he knows that his opponent has the best players in the world.

Enrique told reporters:

"I am convinced that we are going to have a great game and that we are going to put France in difficulty.

"I don't know if it will be enough to win us, but for us it is a very great encouragement.

"In the semi-finals we were the underdogs of the four teams and we turned that feeling around. Now we will try to do the same against the best team in the world – at an individual level, without a doubt.

"We are going to defend as we always do, by taking risks and playing face-to-face, trying to make sure that the only ball on the field is Spain's."

Luis Enrique's


has done a great job so far in this tournament, but he believes that his team can still improve.

"We still have the trump card of being a team,"

he continued.

"We can still be a better team, we can still improve our performance.

"This is a wonderful sport that rewards those who play the best, we will try to be better than them collectively and make it happen."

Luis Enrique is aware of the individual abilities of the French players. The team that has perhaps the best attack in the world with the presence of

Karim Benzema


Kylian Mbappe


Antoine Griezmann


"The power and quality of their front three is indisputable, They are very good and capable of deciding any match based on their individual quality.

"But we are not going to change one iota of what has brought us here, our ambition, our conviction and our quality."
