Spain is working on tactics – Change had to be made
While England showed a strong World Cup, Spain had enormous difficulties. Although they just survived the group stage with two draws and one victory, in the second round they were already knocked out. Spain lost to Russia in penalties and had to fly home early. In Spain, as in Germany, a change has to come. Ball possession football is not as promising as it used to be. Overall, the squad of Spain is older than the one of England. Nevertheless, Spain still has an extremely high quality in their squad. That other teams have caught up, however, has been shown in the World Cup. In the clash with England, it will be exciting how Spain will act tactically. However, it is unlikely that coach Luis Enrique throws everything overboard. Spain looks back on a successful time. In the Nations League against England, we see them as a slight underdog.
