Spain v Germany: De la Fuente backs ´best team´ to fight past ´powerhouse´ hosts

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 3 Jul 2024


Luis de la Fuente believes he has the “best team and the best players” at Euro 2024 as Spain aim to down hosts Germany in the quarter-finals.

Spain have won all four of their matches so far while conceding just once, an unfortunate own goal from Robin Le Normand before they came from behind to hammer Georgia 4-1 in the round of 16.

La Roja are the only team with a 100% winning record at this stage and have even drawn comparisons to the squad that won back-to-back editions of the Euros in 2008 and 2012.

While De la Fuente is not getting ahead of himself, he has no doubt his side can pose Julian Nagelsmann’s team problems in Stuttgart on Friday.

“We are ambitious, and we knew that no one has won the first four matches of a Euro,” De la Fuente said.

“We have the best team and the best players. We are going to fight for it, and we know what we have ahead of us, which is Germany.

“There is quality, commitment and confidence. The next opponent is a powerhouse, with great players. It is a well-known German machine. It will be a very close match, but we are very confident of our game.
