World Cup Group E: Enrique's World Cup team makes Germany tremble

After the historic World Cup win against Costa Rica, Spain want to quickly switch to the group hit against the DFB selection.

"We'll be the first to train tomorrow to prepare for the game against Germany," coach Luis Enrique announced for himself and his support staff on Wednesday evening and became very philosophical: "Praise weakens, we know that, but we won't fall for it."

With a 7-0 win, the highest World Cup victory in football history, a very strong start to the tournament and many hymns of praise, the 2010 world champion goes into the duel with the 2014 title winner on Sunday. While Hansi Flick's team is doomed to win, Spain is under no pressure at first. "We'll try to play Germany the same way. If they beat us then we have to say they were better than us," said Enrique, who was also surprised by his rivals' opening defeat to Japan.

Spanish king in the cabin

The Spanish media raved about the splendid performance of the three-time European champions with his outstanding Barcelona youngsters Gavi, just 18, and Pedri, who turns 20 on Friday. The media also reported on the visit of the Spanish king to the dressing room. "I've never experienced a game like this, with a result like this. The result is important, but watching the Selección play like this was a real pleasure," said Felipe VI accordingly.

"Historical performance" headlined "Marca". "Spanish Symphony" was the comment on "Mundo Deportivo". The portal tweeted immediately after the final whistle: "In Germany they call for help."

"We must not forget that we are playing Germany in the next game and Germany must win," said Enrique. "I don't know if we're favorites for the World Cup, but we certainly have a good chance. We're very keen to do something big," said doubles goalscorer Ferrán Torres.
