It will be Spains first match since they were eliminated by hosts Russian Federation in the Second Round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and also England's first game since they lost to Belgium in the Third-Place match of the World Cup. The team has had plenty of success in the last ten years, winning the 2008 Euro, 2012 Euro and 2010 World Cup.
Spain had been thriving under Lopetegui entering the World Cup, but the shocking coaching change culminated with the team's elimination against host Russian Federation in the tournament's round of 16.
"What you have to remember is that Luis Enrique is not losing those key players, because for him it's a new project starting now", says Clotet. We have a lot of ambition but we have to show it.
"I don't feel like the star", the Real Madrid player said. We have ambition and we have to demonstrate that, we want the world to fall in love with the team again. "A lot of times we are more focused on the machines instead of communicating and speaking with our teammates", he added. I don't know whether sometimes, a section of the press have tried to pit us against each other because we are two men with a lot of character. I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch. "If the Premier League is known for something it's for the good reception it always gives to the best players".
