Spain will face Poland on Day 2 of the Euro 2021. Luis Enrique defended Alvaro Morata, who received strong criticism for having failed the clearest play of the match against Sweden, which ended 0-0.
The coach of the Red Fury said at the press conference that he has not given the title to the Juventus forward, who has scored 19 goals in 41 games played.
Luis Enrique dared to compare Álvaro Morata with historical figures such as Raul Gonzalez and Fernando Torres even compared him with the figures of England, France, Poland and Belgium.
“He does many important things for the team. I don’t give anything away. With 41 games, there is only one player who has scored more goals than him: David Villa. Raúl and Torres, to name a few emblematic ones, did not score as many goals. For the rest of the national teams, only one player has scored more goals in his first 40 games: a certain Harry Kane. Not Kylian Mbappé, not Robert Lewandowski, not Romelu Lukaku … “, he mentioned.
The Iberians score very few goals taking into account that in each game they generate many dangerous plays.
Luis Enrique took a great weight off Alvaro Morata when saying that the responsibility for the goals also falls on Gerard Moreno, Ferran Torres and Mikel Oyarzabal.
“We are a purely offensive team and the responsibility for the goal is not only of a single player. Regarding the goal, we have called up the four Spanish players with the most goals. From there, they can all play,” he concluded.
