Luis Enrique: "The objective is to stop being predictable"

Luis Enrique:

Saturday's match will be the first time the 32-year-old has played in England since May's final but he is not anxious by the potentially fiery reception he may receive.

Ramos also says he is not concerned about receiving any negative reaction when Spain take on Wembley on Saturday.

"I know I was among the candidates to go as full-back".

"I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve and I'm not anxious about that in the slightest".

Spain are entering a new era under former Barcelona coach Enrique, who took charge of his national team in July following the acrimonious departure of predecessor Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Ramos' tussle with Salah had resulted in an injury to the Egyptian.

Spain won three major tournaments in a row at Euro 2008 and 2012 either side of a maiden World Cup win in 2010. Hierro was in temporary charge after Spain fired Julen Lopetegui right before the 2018 World Cup.

Spain are now in London as they prepare to initiate their campaign in UEFA Nations League against England.

"I won't answer that question as you'll write whatever you like in your section in the newspaper, so I'll just you let you carry on in that manner", Isco said.

"The fact we have been a reference over the past decade means that everyone knows our national team", he said.

Enrique, too, gave a glowing report on the man he has decided will continue with the captain's armband under his tenure.

"I like adrenalin so I love the prospect of playing England here at Wembley which is the ideal place", Sky Sports quotes Luis Enrique as saying ahead of Spain's clash with England. With Sergio. He is a great leader, in the gym, in any situation. "I'm thrilled to have him and hope he is with us for a long time - he's exceeded what I expected of him".
