To assist fight among the pre-match fatigue, supervisor — and Bayern Munich legend — Hansi Flick took the lengthy trek to the press convention by himself.
“I got here on my own to the presser as a result of we didn’t need any participant to spend virtually three hours within the automotive. That’s why I mentioned I’ll do it alone. All 26 gamers are necessary so I don’t have a participant with me right here. We put our full give attention to the sport,” mentioned Flick. “Tomorrow it will likely be essential to win the duels and to indicate presence on the pitch. Spain is a staff that has its clear automatisms whatever the system they play. We’ve got a plan that may hopefully work out tomorrow.”
Flick is aware of his squad may have its arms full. Flick suppose Spain has an excellent coach and a roster loaded with expertise.
“I admire Luis Enrique very a lot. He has fashioned a younger staff with unimaginable high quality. Sadly, my favourite participant Thiago (Alcantara) isn’t there, so you possibly can inform how a lot high quality they’ve. Busquets is the center of the staff. We’re actually wanting ahead to the sport,” mentioned Flick. “The standard that Gavi and Pedri have at this younger age is implausible. They’ve developed very nicely in Barcelona within the final two years. And now they’ve discovered their common spot within the nationwide staff. They’ve (Sergio) Busquets behind them as safety. That works nicely.”
