"Spain is an excellent team, we are playing against a group of world-class players, they have very strong ability. That's why I give our team a positive evaluation, they fought to the last minute in Spain."
"My first task is to get this team back in shape, so that they can maintain adequate physical fitness in the next game three days later, and we are facing another ball that has won the championship in recent World Cups. Team Germany. We want to play well there and score points there."
